We'll take you out of "automatic," but won't overload you with too much detail. This 5-hour investment in your digital SLR will pay dividends over and over as you grow with your camera system. By the end of the day, you’ll be ready to conquer challenging lighting, ensure your colors are spot on, and understand how your lens choice affects your final image.
