In this chapter, we're going to focus in on another…way that we can import our photographs into Lightroom.…And that's through a feature called Tethered Capture.…What Tethered Capture allows us to do is to connect our camera to our computer.…And in doing this, we can then trigger…the Shutter Release button, either on the camera or…in Lightroom, and the image will be written directly…to our hard drive and then imported into Lightroom.…And because Tethered Capture is a pretty important concept, especially if you…shoot in the studio a lot or even if you shoot outdoors.…
What I want to do is take a look at the next slide, which will show us a…version of the Tethered Capture menu that we…will see when we start to work in Lightroom.…And I want to talk about this menu so that we're familiar…with it, once we start to work in it inside of Lightroom.…This menu or this dialog displays a lot of helpful things.…For starters we can…make a selection of the camera.…If you have multiple cameras connected, you can…choose a camera that you want to work with.…
