Quick start guide to the best settings for your compact or DSLR camera so that you get great results as soon as possible

This course is designed for new photographers, or those who have a new camera (both compact and DSLR).

You may be overwhelmed by all the buttons and menus, so this course will quickly show you which are the most important settings, and which you can forget about.

By configuring your camera to give you the best possible quality, you'll then be able to concentrate on the more creative aspects of photography.

You'll finish this course with a clear understanding of basic photography principles, and know which settings on your camera need to be 'tweaked' to get the results you want, even when using the 'automatic' modes.

The main areas covered by this course are:

  • How does a camera work
