This step-by-step interactive guide will teach you how to get the most out of your new DSLR camera and take it off automatic mode to get professional looking images.
You'll learn how shutter speed affects motion blur, when to avoid it and when to use it to your advantage; how your aperture (f-stop) affects your depth of field, when you'll need to change your f-stop to get more or less in your shot; how ISO affects the amount of grain in your picture, with examples at different ISOs; and how to get the best exposure in any lighting situation.
You'll also learn the difference between your camera's automatic and creative modes with picture examples of different situations, how to get a perfect focus, and the secrets to getting the best picture possible with your camera on full manual.
We cover everything you need to know about the different lenses available for your camera, and how to decide which ones you'll use most.
We also talk about using flash, how it effects your picture, and how to best control your flash in low-lighting conditions.
Next we talk about the best features for getting the most out of your camera including how to get the correct white balance, the benefits of shooting in RAW, and other equipment you might want to make things go smoothly.
Once you've learned how to control the settings to get the most out of your camera, we teach you how to master different lighting situations to get the best picture possible. You'll learn how to find the best lighting outdoors, and how to tackle difficult indoor lighting situations with a professional end result.
Best of all, you'll have interactive assignments to get you out there to put it all into practice so you'll be able to master the art of shooting with your camera in full Manual.
