What this course covers

- Hi, my name's Rich Harrington. And welcome to this course on tethered shooting. I'm gonna walk you through all the things you need to know to get up and running with a tethered shooting workflow. Essentially, you're gonna learn how to connect your camera to a computer, an external monitor, perhaps using an iPad, or a wireless device to sync the files. And you'll see all sorts of benefits to this workflow. We're gonna take a look at a studio environment, but we'll also jump out into the field and show you a couple of field locations with tethering, both wired and wireless, and walk you through some of the benefits of those.

We've got a lot of ground to cover today, so let's jump in.
