Digital Camera Modes
If asked to nominate which shooting that they most commonly use on their digital cameras, the only overwhelming response from both beginner and the more advanced users alike will be - Automatic Mode.
As a result I’ve decided to take a run through the basic shooting modes that most digital cameras have (both point and shoot and DSLRs have most of these).
While this is pretty basic information for many readers I hope it will be helpful for those right at the beginning of their digital photography journey who are yet to venture out of Automatic Mode.
is a common term used to discuss exposure time, the effective length of time a camera's shutter is open. The total exposure is proportional to this exposure time, or duration of light reaching the film or image sensor.
It is the opening of a photographic lens that can be adjusted to control the amount of light reaching the image sensor.
The lower the number, the less sensitive your camera is to light and the finer the grain. Higher ISO settings are generally used in darker situations to get faster shutter speeds (for example an indoor sports event when you want to freeze the action in lower light)
