Today’s digital SLR cameras offer endless creative opportunities—but only if you know how to use them. Whether you recently acquired your first digital camera or have owned one for a few years, this workshop empowers you to take control of its features and advance your skills.
Designed like a hands-on user manual, this workshop provides you with the knowledge essential to explore all the capabilities of the digital SLR.
