This presentation will discuss how to shoot, back-up, manage workflow and edit photography using your DSLR (digital single lens reflex) camera system.  We will examine and discuss the basic concepts of still photography - shutter speed, aperture (“F” stop), bracketing exposures, depth of field, etc.  This includes using the “rule of thirds” and good composition of each photograph.  We will also examine the use of wide angle, telephoto and close-up lenses, camera mounted flash and fill-lighting.  We will also discuss various photo editing software applications that are available for both PC and Mac-based computer systems
