Learn Camera Settings the Easy Way

Do you shoot in Manual Mode?

Most of us are so afraid to try to use manual mode, our camera is set permanently on auto mode. Many photographers say one should ONLY shoot in manual mode and scoff at those who don’t. You can get some pretty great shots with our high tech cameras these days, so why bother?

Manual Mode is Where the Art Is

Manual mode allows YOU to be the boss! With it, you can realize your vision and create artful and meaningful work.

We will learn how to physically change the settings for your particular camera and practice changing them. Then we will help you balance the three camera settings, ISO, F-stop, and Shutter Speed, for the type of photography you want to shoot.

Are you ready? Let’s get started!
