Essential for Success When Studying Photography with Peter at Olaf’s Photography

Your camera came with a manual.  This is the most important book that your camera came with.  Please keep it in your camera bag.  Get to know your camera manual.  Know how to find the basic settings on your camera.  Even though your camera manual is very thick with all types of features, there are only a hand-full of functions that are necessary to capture the exposure that you want.

Study your manual.
Know how to assemble and disassemble your camera (change lens).
Know how to insert and remove your battery and memory card.

Locate all of the following settings on your camera.

Basic Settings You Should Know How to Change:
ISO – controls the image sensor
Aperture – controls light and depth of field (DOF)
Shutter Speed – controls light and movement
Light Metering – measures light for the correct exposure

Practice changing these settings
Change your ISO to 800
Change your Aperture to 5.6
Change your Shutter Speed to 1/60 and then 1/125
Change your Metering Mode to Evaluative

By challenging yourself to find and know how to change the above settings on your camera, you will then be ready to easily find these settings during your course of study with Peter when it comes time to learn how to use them.
You need to know how to operate your camera and where the buttons are located to change certain functions. 

It takes talent and knowledge to be a great photographer.  You have the talent now I will teach you and give you the knowledge you need to Turn Your Snapshots Into Great Shots.
