Camera Settings 101 - all about the 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?


Ready to jump in head first and learn all your settings one-by-one ? (Don‘t be afraid, just do it and try!)
