Tips and Techniques
I enjoyed this course because not only did the trainers tell us what settings are advised on the camera but they took us back several stages to get the best pics having used focus stacking, ie checking the ultimate aperture and focal length for the lens you are using. Focus breathing was a new concept too. So obvious now I know.
