During this workshop, we will take a look at some of the basic common controls found on most cameras. Whatever type of camera you have, I want you to start to get an understanding of what each of the controls does, how they work, any disadvantages or drawbacks to them and how to start getting better results from each control.

Is this the right Workshop for me?
