Today's cameras put an amazing amount of power in the hands of amateur photographers, but it's not always easy to make use of it. All those buttons, dials, and settings can be pretty intimidating. In this workshop, expert photographer Joseph Linaschke helps you understand what's going on inside your camera, explaining fundamentals like what an aperture is and how shutter speed works. Learn basics such as how to hold the camera, what various modes mean and when to use them, and even how and when to use the camera's flash. There's also creative instruction to guide you towards becoming a better photographer. As you become more comfortable with your gear, you'll find that many new creative possibilities open up for you and the quality of your photography improves.
This section is all about adding light to your photos. We're going to start with a tiny little on-camera flash that you see on this DSLR, and then we're going to move into bigger on-camera flashes like this one here. We're also going to explore taking this flash off of the camera and even adding multiple flashes. We're also going to take a look at adding modifiers. As you can see behind me here I have a whole bunch of different things that we can use to change the light to modify the light for the photo. I think you'll find once you get into this section that adding light is not as hard as it sounds and it can be a lot of fun.
