Canon T5i / 700D Experience – e-Book Camera Guide
Introduction – The Still Photography Guide to Operation and Image Creation with the Canon Rebel T5i / EOS 700D
With the T5i out, many owners don’t use all the advanced features of their brand new DSLR. Nowadays, with acceptable prices of basic photography equipment, it is not uncommon to see people taking shots at weddings or other events using DSLRs, but still don’t understanding anything beyond the basics. With lack of knowledge they make average or even poor images instead of great ones. I always say: investing in your own knowledge and education is the best investment that you can make — the return is always positive.
