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.

When it comes to choosing a software application for tethering, you have lots of options. In most cases the manufacturer may actually have a tool, although Nikon seems to have let theirs go by the way side. And what you'll find as you're out there looking is that different levels of control are available. If you just want to transfer the files and remotely trigger, that's pretty easy. On the other hand, if you actually want to manually control the camera, that's going to take a little bit more. I recommend that you actually go out and try some trial versions, that's the whole idea behind trials.
You can work with these for a couple of weeks and see which one works for you. I'm going to show you some of the most popular ones out there. But, in no way can we cover all the ones that are available. So, be sure to download some demos, and see, which ones work for you.
