Camera shooting modes
These articles rely on your understanding of the different shooting modes cameras offer. These modes dictate how much control you have over the camera settings and how much the camera does for you. The common settings are:
- Manual: The user controls all of the settings
- Aperture priority: The user controls the aperture setting. The camera then decides the shutter speed and ISO
- Shutter priority: The user controls the shutter speed setting. The camera decides the aperture and ISO
- Program/auto: The camera controls all of the settings
To have the most control over the image you intend to capture, we recommend you practice using the Manual shooting mode.
