i’ve had several inquires for another Basic Photography Seminar which i may do again
in the meantime
why don’t i share some basic information about photography here.?.
lets get you to stop photographing everything on AUTO. scary, I know. but trust me IT WILL GET EASIER and you may even thank me later ( i didn’t say NOW, but later: wink wink)
when i first started interning for a wedding photographer i was told to shoot on aperture priority or shutter priority (while this was helpful to start) it became more of a “crutch” than anything else.
i didn’t take the time to learn all of my camera settings- bad idea! i relied completely on the camera to think for me.
it’s a camera. it can’t think for me.
i put my camera on manual mode and have never looked back.
Soooo, what do you need to know when you shoot manually? a lot.
let’s start with the basics.
your camera has a dial at the top of it (this is a photo of mine)
for the sake of this lesson lets just look at 3 of the letters and what they mean
M= Manual Mode ( you control all of the settings on your camera)
AV= Aperture Priority (you control the aperture of your camera, while the camera controls everything else)
TV= Shutter Priority (you control the shutter of your camera, while the camera controls everything else)
