For next Monday, please read sections 1-4 in the manual for the camera. It seems like a lot, but the pages are really small … most of this you won’t use on a regular basis, but it’ll help you trouble shoot on your own if you get stuck somewhere.
I would also recommend re-reading part one of the McNally book that deals with exposure.
Questions on what we talked about? Post them here or email me. Wednesday’s class was a lot of information to process, it’ll take a bit of study to get it to set in.
