- Hi, I'm Derrick Story, and welcome to Getting Pro Results from a Compact Camera. In this course, we'll go over techniques to help you shoot professional quality photographs with a compact camera, or what some fondly call the point and shoot. We'll explore how to go beyond the limits of compact camera lens by getting much closer to your subject using macro mode, and by capturing a wider scene through a panoramic technique that involves stitching together multiple, individual shots. Next, we'll learn how to tame your exposures by adjusting your ISO settings and working with exposure lock.
And finally, we'll demystify the all too often misunderstood flash with a couple of tips that at a glance, they seem counterintuitive, but ultimately enhance your ability to apply creative flash techniques on the fly. I've been shooting with all sorts of cameras for as long as I can remember, and I'm excited to get the chance to share techniques that I've picked up over the years. By the end of this course, you'll have much better control over your compact camera. So, let's get started with Getting Pro Results from a Compact Camera.
