Quick Camera Tip: WHY SHOOTING MANUAL

TIPS FOR WHY SHOOTING MANUAL

I am back from my vacation, fresh and ready to rock, and I want to share a few reasons you should consider shooting Manual for better pictures for this Monday’s tip.

SEMI-AUTOMATIC VS MANUAL

Using the Semi-automatic settings, Shutter Priority or Aperture priority is an improvement. But upgrading to a shooting manual should be your goal.
.
In semi-automatic settings, you control the shutter speed or the aperture, and your camera sets the other factor.

WHAT IF YOU WANT TO USE A FASTER SHUTTER SPEED WHILE USING A HIGHER APERTURE TO EXPAND THE FOCUSING RANGE?

This example shows how the shooting manual gives you complete control.

ALWAYS CHECK THE EXPOSURE!

Checking Exposure is the essential part of manual shooting. Always keep an eye on the camera’s built-in light meter.
.
You can find the built-in light meter inside the viewfinder and on the Camera’s LCD. I strongly suggest practicing checking the Exposure constantly to make it your second nature!

Quick Camera Tip: CAMERA LENSES

How to Choose Camera Lenses?

Previously, I talked about different camera bodies. And even an entry-level camera offers most controls and settings that you may need. Unlike the camera body, I have a different approach to camera lenses. Here are a few tips:

.

Pro Lenses vs Kit Lenses

Kit lenses usually are not that sharp. They are mainly made of plastic elements. Therefore, they are fragile, and the image quality always lacks clarity. 

Pro lenses may look expensive, but they worth the investment. Most pro lenses maintain their values, and they are very durable.   

Pro Camera Lenses

Too many lenses and too many codes to decipher.

Using the Proper Lens

We can classify lenses into many different classes. For the sake of this post, I talk about Focal Length.

.

Wide-angle Lenses

These lenses are perfect for landscape, Scenery, Cityscape, etc., as they cover more area. The images are pleasant, although there may be some image distortion.   

.

Telephoto Lenses

These lenses are usually longer and heavier. They are perfect for taking photos from a distance, such as in Sports or Wildlife photography. Telephotos are Photographers’ choice of lens for portraiture.    

.

There are many more categories for lenses that I cover thoroughly in Photography Bootcamp. 

.

Beginners Photography Bootcamp is a six-week program and includes six classroom sessions and two field trips. Practical exercises and the small class size make it the best camera workshop.

The next Bootcamp starts on September 16, 2021.

Beginners Photography Bootcamp

Bootcamp is the perfect photography class for beginners. It covers every feature of your camera, from exposure settings to advanced focusing modes.

I dedicate a good portion of Bootcamp to explain the differences in camera lenses. Digital Photography Bootcamp is one of our most popular photography courses.
