  • 1. Using Your CameraAperture, Shutter Speed and ISO
  • 2. The Joys of Manual ModeAs more and more people give up their point and shoots fordigital SLR andcompact ILC cameras,they learn the versatilityand creativity afforded byswitching their cameras tomanual mode.
  • 3. The Aspects of Manual ModeWhen you switch your camera into manual mode, you takecontrol of the amount of light that gets let into yourcamera. And in photography, light is everything.
  • 4. ApertureTogether with shutter speed and ISO, your camera’saperture helps control the amount of light that entersyour camera.The smaller the aperture, the larger the opening, and themore light that gets in.
  • 5. Shutter SpeedIf aperture governs the amount oflight that enters the camera,shutter speed controlsthe amount of time that lighthas to reach the camera’ssensor.Photographers can use a slower shutter speed to slowdown a chaotic scene, and a higher shutter speed tocapture action shots.
  • 6. ISOISO is the number that regulates a camera’s lightsensitivity. The lower the ISO, the lower the lightsensitivity; the higher the ISO, the higher the lightsensitivity.Higher ISOs enable the camerato capture images in low lightwithout the use of a flash.Note: ISO can be tricky. Dialit up too far, and you increasethe likelihood that yourphotos will appear grainy.
  • 7. So, What’s the Perfect Setting?Unfortunately, there is no aperture-shutter-speed-ISO“sweet spot.” Light conditions, subject variabilities, andyour purpose for the photo will determine whichcombination you use.If you let too much light in, for example, you willoverexpose your image; don’t let enough light in, andyour image will be underexposed.
  • 8. Our Advice? Play.It’s important to play around in with your camera. Treat itlike a musical instrument. You would never expect topick up a guitar and play it perfectly the first time. Thesame is true with photography. So, practice,remembering that you’re not capturing images, you’recapturing light.
  • 9. Using Manual ModeReady to play? Switch your camera’s setting into ManualMode by turning to M on the main dial. Then, use yourcamera’s owners’ manualfor instructions onsetting aperture, ISOand shutter speed.For more information aboutaperture and depth of field,please visit our blog.
