The first thing we'll talk about is how to carry and handle your camera. Because let's face it, if you're carrying your camera in a way that makes it hard to get to or generally inaccessible. When you're ready to get a shot, the camera may not be ready for you. So we want to make sure that that camera is always available and ready quickly when you want to get that picture. So we're going to talk about a few things here. We'll talk about how to actually physically carry the camera on your body. We'll also talk about some tips on keeping that camera ready so its available when you need it.
- Carry and hold that DSLR like a pro
- Stabilizing the camera: from hands to water glasses to tripods
- Using aperture, shutter speed, and ISO
- What the buttons do
- Manually controlling your autofocus
- Working with flash
- Thinking creatively
- Buying new gear
