Digital Camera Modes – Shutter Aperture Priority and more

Digital Cameras can be placed in the gallery of different shooting modes. Mode most used is automatic – the only thing you need to do is point and shoot. However, to understand and use the other options that will allow for better photos in certain scenarios. Here's how.

Let's review the different camera modes. Some modes may not be available in the camera. You can set the mode, either with the camera menu on the LCD screen in which case you can read and choose the mode by name or you can set it by turning a dial in which case you choose the mode of visual icon. Spend some time learning the camera dial icons used – some are easy to remember (eg 'A' by Aperture priority and 'S' Shutter priority), and others can be confusing.

  • Automatic mode – This is the simplest way and is also sometimes known as Shooting Program. In this mode the camera does everything for you – set the shutter speed, aperture, focus and the flash fires necessary. This mode is the easiest to use and is good if you have to capture an event and do not have time to play with the settings. It is also a good starting point for fans and a good option if you want to capture a moment or experience and no matter how much good photographic qualities of the photo.
  • Priority opening – in this mode you manually set the aperture value. The camera automatically takes care of everything else for you – for example, setting the optimal speed shutter opening you chose. There are physical limitations and not every aperture setting you choose may be accompanied by other securities giving rise to a good photo. The camera will let you know by flashing a green LED or otherwise if they are the optimal values that work with your selected aperture value. One of the most common uses of this mode is when you need a depth of field. By decreasing the aperture of f-in the number of narrow depth of field. A narrow depth of field results in a picture that focuses on a specific object at a specific distance while the background is clear. This is commonly used for example when shooting portraits.
  • Shutter Priority – In this mode, you manually set the shutter speed. The camera automatically takes care of everything else for you – for example, set the value optimum aperture for the shutter speed you chose. There are physical limitations and not all the shutter speed you choose can be accompanied by other values that give rise to a good picture. The camera will let you know by flashing a green LED or in another way if the optimal configuration is working with the speed selected shutter. Using this mode is useful if you need to capture fast-moving object or scene you want to freeze setting the trigger for high speed. In other cases, if you want to capture the feeling of motion picture to a slow shutter speed would do the trick. For example when taking pictures of water to set the shutter relatively low speed to blend the water, and touch his motion making the picture more alive.
  • Manual mode – In this mode you can set the aperture and the shutter speed to whatever value you want. It gives you more flexibility in shooting the picture but is more difficult to use. Although the camera does not set values for most still cameras will let you know if the values are good or not selected for the photo you are shooting.
  • Portrait mode – This mode optimizes the camera settings for portrait photos. The camera sets the aperture to a minimum number f, and high-speed shutter with to shoot with a depth of field that an object is focused and defocused. Portrait mode should be used on a well lit environment, like the light of day outside or in a well lit. It is best not to use this mode with a flash.
  • landscape mode – This mode optimizes the camera settings for landscape photos. The white balance is adjusted to the natural sunlight and deep depth of field allowing to capture objects at long distances.
  • Macro Mode – This mode is used when shooting extreme close-up. How close you can reach the object depends on the lens you use.
  • Sport mode – In this mode you can shoot high-speed objects such as runners or cars in a race car. The shutter is adjusted to high speed to catch the object without blur and auto focus is usually set to continuous to allow focusing on the moving object.
  • Night Mode – The camera optimizes settings for night shots. Usually, when shooting night in other ways the result is a picture in black and some scattered points of light. In the night mode, photo included Further details of the less enlightened objects. From the night mode uses very low shutter speeds the camera needs to be stabilized either on a stable surface or use a tripod.
  • In conclusion use the fact that taking extra digital photos for free. No additional cost in taking more pictures. Experiment with different photo shooting modes and learn what the best setting in which they work. You will soon find naturally changing camera modes to accommodate different conditions.
