The Pros Shoot in Manual

The pros want to have full control over their cameras, that’s why they shoot using the manual settings.

Capture the Photo

Before editing a great photo, you have to capture one first. That’s what this course is all about. The goal of this course is to help you to understand and master the manual settings of the camera and lens so you can get the best photo straight out of the camera.

Don’t Be Scared

Most people are scared to switch to manual because they are afraid that they will miss the shot or look unprofessional during a session. But the truth is if you’re not using the manual settings you are severely underutilizing the power of your camera and lens.

Shooting in Manual

After you take this course you will understand how to capture the photos that you have in your mind by harnessing the power of the manual settings and become confident when you’re shooting.
