I decided after listening to one suggestion on how to make money in event photography was to know your camera (he’s absolutely correct) was to challenge myself to learn all the functions of my Nikon 5100 camera.
Surprisingly, Linda.com had a video lesson on the entire camera. But after watching, I still wasn’t completely confident. So, I thought I would blog about about all the function as the best way to learn it. So, let me get started.
