I love this course – a must see.  Compact, point-and-shoot cameras are convenient, travel-ready, and inexpensive. They’re also more capable—and complex—than ever. In Getting Pro Results from a Compact Camera, photographer Derrick Story shows how to use a compact camera to take photos that rival those of far more expensive cameras. Derrick shows how to get the most out the camera’s lens as you shoot wide-angle, telephoto, and even macro shots. Derrick also discusses the camera’s exposure system and clarifies the differences among ISO settings and scene modes. He also shows how to get the best pictures in a variety of lighting conditions, including making judicious use of the flash to supplement existing light.

Topics include:

  • Understanding ISO
  • Stitching a panorama
  • Using exposure lock
  • Using the flash indoors and out
  • Adapting professional techniques to small cameras
