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.

Now, you saw the CamRanger running on the laptop. Let me show you a mobile device. It's pretty similar. You're going to want to connect to the regular internet first, so let me just go here to our Wi-Fi network, and I just need launch the CamRanger app. Now, the first time I do, it's going to ask me for the serial number off the CamRanger, which is pretty normal. And that's going to allow it to see the CamRanger. Now that it's running, I just want to connect the Wifi network to the CamRanger. So I'll go to my Wifi settings and enable them, and look for the CamRanger. I've already entered in the password, it's the same password on the back of your CamRanger, so be sure not to lose that sticker.
I'd recommend taking a photo of it and putting it on your camera phone or even jotting it down into a serial database, because it's a really important, highly unique number. Alright, I've got that, it's connected. Let's go ahead and switch over to the app.
