For owners of DSLRs (interchangeable lens cameras) looking for a grounding in photo technique and camera control for better pictures of people, places and things. Using original images Jess will show you how and when to employ different camera settings for effect and will offer compositional tips and positioning strategies to improve your portrait, sport/action, landscape and even flash images.
