Aperture & Shutter Settings
The first thing we'll be doing is leaning how to use the Canon 60D DSLR Camera's properly. That means setting the camera, not on Program or Auto Mode, but fully utilising the camera in Manual, Av & Tv mode. We'll also be learning how to use the various ISO settings and how to control things like, the 'depth of field', 'motion blur' and what constitutes good 'bokeh' in your shots!
