HOW TO: DSRL Manual Settings for Beginners

Updated: Feb 8, 2019

Bought a new DSLR camera?

That's fantastic!

Unfortunately, many people buy a DSLR and then don't understand why their photos aren't magically amazing.

"My iPhone's photos are just as good!"

It happens all the time.

A DSLR camera isn't a magic wand that create art with the click of a button. It takes work, and there's a learning curve.

In this video, Dan and I talk about the three most important factors that create a high quality, properly exposed photo. If you're a beginner with a DSLR camera, you should learn how to shoot on MANUAL mode instead of automatic.

In manual mode, you control your aperture (f-stop), ISO, and shutter speed. These three settings make or break your photos, and every professional photographer should have a handle on them.
