Course Description

Tethering, or connecting your camera directly to your computer, is one of the great tools of the digital age. Tethering puts the digital darkroom at your fingertips and by your side while you photograph, providing real-time feedback and unparalleled control over your camera, images, and files.

Capture One has long been considered the gold standard for tethering in the photo industry, and together we explore the program to develop a working understanding of its functions and capabilities, while learning industry standards for setup and workflow. Most importantly, we address the practical challenges of tethering in the real world, from the studio to the most extreme outdoor conditions.

Nick Rapaz has 17 years of experience in the New York photo industry, and he discusses tethering under pressure and in a variety of scenarios. Nick also walks us through various technical issues: choosing the right cables to managing your software, maintaining battery power and temperature, and shielding your tech from the elements, among others.

Whether you’re still-life photographer who seeks to control the camera remotely, a landscape or interior photographer needing a live view for composition, or a fashion/portrait photographer who wants to share images with a client, you gain the tools you need to tether in any environment with confidence.
