So you want to start being in control of your camera and take the first step to getting creative with your photography.

There are a few things to keep in mind when shooting in manual mode and that is the fact that you want to ensure 2 things for each and every single photograph from this point forward and that is to get the correct exposure and get the desired creative effect you are after.

And when doing so, you will always be using a combination of 3 different settings in your camera:

  1. Shutter Speed - Controls the length of time that light is exposed to the sensor.
  2. Aperture - Controls the volume of light entering the camera.
  3. ISO - The sensitivity of our sensor to light.

Each one of these settings works by halving or doubling the amount of light required (the F-Stop), and in some cameras, 1/3 F-Stop increments can be used for fine adjustments.
