You’ll master the big 3 camera settings—F-stops, ISO and Shutter Speed to take your photos to the next level. Nick presents the concepts in small digestible bites, making it easy and fun!

Going Manual is a series of online videos and resources to help anyone interested in turning off the Auto setting on their DSLR camera. Each lesson topic is posted in the form of a video with written components, a discussion board, assignments and a gallery to upload your assignment photos.  You’ll also receive a quiz to test your grasp of the topics with a video review, including the answers, from Nick.
