Connecting a computer to your DSLR camera opens up a brand-new world of opportunities in image making. You can gain greater control over your in-camera adjustments and get a more accurate picture of your lighting and setup. In this course, Rich Harrington introduces the tethered shooting workflow and shows how to connect your camera to a computer, an external monitor, and even an iPad or mobile device. He'll review the shooting environment, building the tethered station, software solutions for tethering, and wireless shooting with a CamRanger or GoPro camera. These techniques work well both in the studio and in the field, so you'll be prepared for all tethered shooting scenarios.

On the back of your Cam Ranger you're going to find a code and you're going to need this code for all sorts of things. Including getting the software registered and everything else when you first launch. Now I recommend you go ahead and launch the software. Get that up and running and it'll ask you for the code. Whether you're using the iPad or the desktop version. Just make sure you go ahead and trigger that. Alright let's go to the CamRanger website for a second. We'll click downloads and you'll note the software is available for Android, Windows, Mac OS X, and iOS, so it should cover most users.
Let's start with the CamRanger for the Mac. Now when you launch it, it may ask you to register. I've already registered my software by entering the code on the back of my device, and I was connected to the internet so it paired. The big takeaway here is don't get so excited with your camera and go out into the field without an internet connection. You actually have to register the software on each device you want to use and to do that, you're going to need an actual internet connection to do so. So get that out of the way first. Once you've gone ahead and launched, then you can connect to that wireless network.
