raphy and general questions for pie. We have a model. Today we have all the gear and so your questions will actually be able to see pie go in action. So please help me. Welcome to the stage pie, Dear PSA. Thanks So welcome. Everybody gets to me peeking. I peeked once, just for fun. All right, so today is Q and A like Kennedy said, We want everybody's involvement. You guys here, you guys at home submit questions. Let us know, because this is all for you guys. And right now we're gonna jump into a little bit of photography. Wanna one? So every one of these courses that we have in the library or kind of designed for different purposes lighting are sorry photography. One. No one is designed for jumping into understanding your gear, learning how to take incredible images with just the stuff that you might already have. Which means that four foot on everyone a one we use sub $500 DSLR We literally went to Costco and picked up the rebel kit and the deed. I think like the Nikon 5100 of the time. Whatever was $500 DSLR we picked up kit lenses. We picked up $100 prime lenses, and we demonstrate how you can shape light with just simple things, like cardboard and pieces of cloth, which we have over there and things like that to create your images, reflectors, stuff that is easy to get. So that's what we're focusing on is getting you all comfortable with shooting manual, getting you out of any of the automated modes and understanding the camera. So any questions you have regarding that is perfect for this first segment. How do you get the most out of your DSLR?
