Camera Setting 101: getting to know your dial
Need help with your Dial and knowing what to do first when you take your beginning level camera out for a spin?
So many dials and pictures to keep track of
let‘s go through each one:
Auto Mode: Camera controls every feature.
be careful with this mode- you won’t have any control in the studio!
Shutter Priority- you control only the shutter and your camera dies the rest.
Great for action shots and freezing motion.
Aperture priority: changes only the opening of the lens to allow more natural light in
Great for portraits but could get blurry on action!
Want a little bit more wiggle room then full auto, but not ready for many changes?
Sport mode- a great preset for freezing action
A great preset for taking pictures of people
Want to take pictures at night? Watch out- the pop- up flash will wash out your subject
On a trip or a vacation?
Taking pictures of tiny objects like a flower?
