Mastering the manual mode

MASTERING THE MANUAL MODE

why it’s important and how to use it


Canon 5d mark ii modes

canon 5d mark ii: modes

Bulb exposure: holds the shutter open, don’t use this.

Manual exposure:

Allows user to adjust shutter speed, aperture, and iso

APERTURE PRIORITY AUTO EXPOSURE:

USER CONTROLS APERTURE

Shutter priority:

User controls shutter speed

Program auto exposure:

User controls iso

Fully automatic mode:

The camera chooses everything

Creative auto mode: “fun” settings


Why should i use the manual mode

Why should I use the manual mode?

  • It allows for greater control

  • The camera doesn’t always choose the best settings

  • It forces the user to learn the ins-and-outs of the camera

  • You’ll impress other photographers with your vast camera knowledge


How to shoot in manual mode the basics

How to shoot in manual mode (the basics)

APERTURE:

How much light the camera lets in. keep this at the lowest number “fstop” available. Depends on the lens.

Shutter speed:

The smaller the fraction, the faster the shutter. A fast speed (1/300) is needed to freeze motion. The faster the shutter speed, the darker the image becomes.

iso:

The camera’s sensitivity to light. On a sunny day use 100-200, 400-800 if cloudy/indoors, >800 for poor lighting conditions (indoor sports, nighttime). Increasing the iso will make the picture brighter, but also decrease the image quality.

The key is to find the balance between shutter speed and iso

Recommended settings

Autofocus point: automatic

Picture style: auto or standard

White balance: automatic (you can change this in photoshop later)

Metering mode: evaluative

Drive mode: continuous shooting

af mode: al focus

Image quality: raw is best, but use “L” (JPEG)

Remember:

Adjusting manually is tedious at first, but once you get used to it, you won’t want to switch back to any other modes.
