With the fast moving techno age we’re in right now, many professional cameras are available now to you, the non-professional. But as I too often hear from so many of you, “I have a new camera, but I’m not sure what to do with it.” so many dials, buttons and settings, but you’re still only using the basic, fully automatic mode because you don’t know what all those buttons are used for.

I’m giving you a break today. Today I’m only posting some examples to culminate everything we’ve been talking about adding light or flash or strobe or whatever. I hope you’ve been playing around with your own camera and putting into action what you’ve learned this far. As I was all alone in the house and […]
This is a long lesson, so stay with it. I considered dividing it into two lessons, but I actually wanted to keep all this info together. You don’t have to read it all in one day. Break it up yourself so you can get a clear understanding of all this stuff. Let’s first address why […]
