As you’ll know, a big part of being a successful Lifelong Learner is being curious. That’s what you are demonstrating now. You’re curious about how your DSLR (Digital Single-Lens Reflex) camera works.

When you’re curious, it’s just not enough to be told that Pythagoras’ theorem is that the square on the hypotenuse of a right-angled triangle is equal to the sum of the squares on the other two sides.

You have a DSLR. By pressing buttons on it you can deliver up nice photos, automatically. In automatic mode, though, it’s fair to say you haven’t produced them. They’re really the camera’s photos. The camera has done everything for you.

As a Lifelong Learner, you need more than this. You’re curious and want to find out what part you can play in the creation of these photos. You want to find out how you can tweak them to suit your needs and preferences.

By doing so, you’ll get that feeling of great satisfaction, which all Lifelong Learners love when they achieve their goal. And you’ll feel that great satisfaction that you can help others in the future.

So, that’s what this course is all about: learning to adapt your DSLR to give you the photos you prefer.
