Tethering to a Laptop

Tethering is a method where your camera is talking to your computer and it allows you to not only see your photos on your computer screen, and in more detail, but you can also do some processing right away. In this course I will explain in details what’s involved with tethering your camera to your laptop as well as external monitors.

Setting and Testing your Strobes: Tethering to a Laptop

To learn more, I've created an exciting course with expert photographer Abba Shapiro called Up and Running with Studio Strobes for Lynda.com


Strobe lighting has become increasingly popular and is a lot of fun to work with. One advantage to strobe lights is that the light has the same color as daylight, so you can mix strobes and daylight as you would with a flash fill or an architectural image.  In this course, expert photographer Abba Shapiro and I will dive into the basics of strobe lighting, show you a few demos, and how to get the most out of what you already have.  We’ll also talk to you about building an affordable kit, while showing you different modifiers and lights to capture creative shots with simple equipment.

Topics in this course include:

  • Why shoot with strobes?
  • Buying a lighting setup or parts
  • Mixing brands
  • Understanding the components of a studio strobe kit
  • Getting to know your lights
  • Triggering a light
  • Setting up your lights effectively
  • Testing your strobes
  • Modifying strobe lights
