A digital photography how to guide can be really helpful when starting out. The type of photographer you are can be determined with a quick glance at your camera most of the time. This won’t be because of the type of camera you own, or the expense or quality of it. It can be determined simply by looking at the settings mode of your camera.

If you’re any kind of serious photographer then you should really be using your camera in manual mode. And if you’ve yet to get started or aren’t all that much of a dedicated photographer, then you might find that your camera is in automatic mode.

No serious photographer worth his salt will keep their camera in automatic mode, unless of course they only just bought it two seconds ago. However, you might be stuck in automatic mode for the longest time if you don’t know what to do and if you’re scared or unsure of how and what to do as well.

Before I went digital I was carrying around my film camera and for the longest time ever, I was stuck on the automatic setting. And even when I did start the switch to manual mode I didn’t go the distance, and stayed somewhere in a semi-manual mode.

I never fully changed over to manual until the day that I bought my digital camera. Since I had to put down the camera for at least a few seconds without taking photographs to learn how to take photographs with it, I also came across the ways and means by which I could go fully manual if I wanted to.

The rest, as they say, is history.

I changed over to fully-manual and haven’t looked back since. Oh, it wasn’t as easy as all that, it took time and a little bit of an adjustment on my part to get the whole show fully on the road, but it finally did happen.

The reason it was easier in part for me to change over to fully manual with my new digital camera was the reason it was popular in the first place, the lack of expensive film to process. I was working in color positives by that time, although I wasn’t a truly great photographer.

I knew I wanted to be one, so color positives it was. The expenses associated with processing, and the desire to stay comfortably ensconced in my familiar little world, were what kept me from going to fully-manual mode.

However, since shooting digital is great on the budget, at least in the long run, I turned over a new leaf, and along with learning that manual was where I wanted to be and should have been all this time, I also learned all about my new digital camera.

It’s a touching story you must admit, but there was a moral behind it too. Don’t be afraid to use the manual settings on your camera, they can give you greater control and depth over how your photographs turn out.

If you’re still unsure how to go about getting yourself locked into manual mode, then might I suggest that you take the time out from your photographic efforts and learn all about the ins and outs of manual mode? And there’s no better place to start than in your house or backyard where you can play to your heart’s content.
