Getting Control Of Your Camera.
Coming up over the next few posts...
In a previous post I argued that the use of the automatic modes in modern digital cameras was likely to give you some disappointing results. For your average, everyday shot, the modern digital camera is a great innovation. However, once you start to get into more interesting photographic situations things are different. The challenge comes when you want to get your camera to do things that an average program cannot handle. It is then you need to consider taking full control of your camera. You need to start using the manual modes.
I am going to make it a theme of this site to help you start to get control of your camera. Using manual modes may seem daunting, but it is fun, interesting and will give you better results. All it takes is some practice and to learn some new skills. Once you get control of your camera you will wonder why you did not do it before.
