In this one-day hands-on workshop, Charlie Smith of Canon Professional Services will get you up and running fast with the skills you need to get the most from your camera. He'll take you out of "automatic," but won't overload you with too much detail. This 6-hour investment in your digital SLR will pay dividends over and over as you grow with your camera system. This course is guaranteed to improve your pictures!

Topics covered:

            •           Camera settings for creative control
