Add to Cart 7.95

A comprehensive no-nonsense approach to understanding photography and learning how to use your Canon EOS 200D (also known as Rebel SL2) camera.

This beginner-level guide is ideal if you’re new to photography, you are self-taught or if you learnt photography in the days of film cameras and you sometimes struggle to get the images you want from your digital SLR camera.

You’ll start off learning the basic terms used in photography and then how to use the Basic Zone modes to the full. Once the Basic Zone has been fully explored, you’ll move onto taking images using some of the creative controls on your 200D. Common overrides are covered, and you’ll be shown how and when to use them.

Then, as the guide moves on, you'll learn how to start taking images using the Creative Zone modes on your 200D. You'll also find out about some of the common overrides that you're likely to need within these modes – what they do and how they are applied.

An important area when using a new DSLR is lens choice and terminology. This book includes a section on lens usage and how it affects your photography.

So you can practice what you're learning, Nina has included a few assignments as you work through the book. This will help reinforce the techniques and get you camera confident.

Finally, you’ll finish off by considering the thought process that you should follow to get the best results and how elements such as lighting can affect what you’re trying to photograph with your EOS 200D.

By the end of this guide, you’ll be more confident handling your Canon EOS 200D DSLR camera and have the tools available to start taking creative control of your photography.
