Master your compact camera with our latest live-action course

In Chapter 1, Getting the Most Out of the Lens, Derrick shows us how to use sunglasses as a polarized filter.

Compact, point-and-shoot cameras are getting better and better. They’re also getting more complex, sporting features that give you the kind of creative options that were once the exclusive domain of bulky, expensive cameras.

With our latest course, Getting Professional Results from a Compact Camera, photographer Derrick Story shows you how to master your camera’s exposure settings, control its flash, and squeeze every bit of performance out of its optics. Go on-location as Derrick shoots everything from panoramas to macros to nighttime shots, then return to the computer and see how to make them look their best.
