Automatic Mode

‘Auto mode tells your camera to use it’s best judgement to select shutter speed, aperture, ISO, white balance, focus and flash to take the best shot that it can.”

” some cameras auto mode lets you override flash or change it to red eye reduction.”

Portrait Mode

“portrait mode works best when you’re photographing a single subject so get in close enough to your subject (either by zooming in or walking closer) so that your photographing the head and shoulders of them). ”

Macro Mode

“Keep your camera and the object you’re photographing parallel if possible or you’ll find a lot of it will be out of focus.”

Landscape Mode

“his mode is almost the exact opposite of portrait mode in that it sets the camera up with a small aperture (large number) to make sure as much of the scene you’re photographing will be in focus as possible (ie it give you a large depth of field).”

Sports Mode

“It is ideal for photographing any moving objects including people playing sports, pets, cars, wildlife etc. Sports mode attempts to freeze the action by increasing the shutter speed.”

Night Mode

” Night mode (a technique also called ‘slow shutter sync’) is for shooting in low light situations and sets your camera to use a longer shutter speed to help capture details of the background but it also fires off a flash to illuminate the foreground (and subject)”

Movie Mode

  • Panoramic/Stitch Mode – for taking shots of a panoramic scene to be joined together later as one image.
  • Snow Mode – to help with tricky bright lighting at the snow
  • Fireworks Mode – for shooting firework displays
  • Kids and Pets Mode – fast moving objects can be tricky – this mode seems to speed up shutter speed and help reduce shutter lag with some pre focussing
  • Underwater Mode – underwater photography has it’s own unique set of exposure requirements
  • Beach Mode – another bright scene mode
  • Indoor Mode – helps with setting shutter speed and white balance
  • Foliage Mode – boosts saturation to give nice bold colors

Aperture Priority Mode (A or AV)

“is means you’ll have a larger depth of field (more of the scene will be in focus) but that your camera will choose a slower shutter speed.”

Shutter Priority Mode (S or TV)

“Shutter priority is very similar to aperture priority mode but is the mode where you select a shutter speed and the camera then chooses all of the other settings. ”

Program Mode (P)

“n those cameras that have both, Program mode is similar to Auto but gives you a little more control over some other features including flash, white balance, ISO etc. ”

Manual Mode

“It gives you the flexibility to set your shots up as you wish. Of course you also need to have some idea of what you’re doing in manual mode ”

The way this picture shows

actions and motion is because

the four wheeler looks like it

this puddle and as they lift up their

shoe is what created the water to look

the way it does.
