Using Manual Mode

Using Manual Mode A Group Discussion

November 21st, 7:00-8:30 pm
APG Social 6:30 pm 
The Lyndon House – 211 Hoyt St., Athens, GA 30601

Manual mode on a camera allows photographers to determine the exposure of an image by letting them select an ISO value, an aperture value, and a shutter speed value. By selecting these values, you have ultimate control over the look of the photo, but you must have an understanding of how ISO, shutter speed, and aperture affect your photograph.

This is the goal of this month’s APG meeting – to give a basic understanding of exposure and how you can change the look of photos with manual mode settings. We will have a presentation and group discussion on manual mode that will be for the novice as well as seasoned photographers.

The APG president, Martin Bozone, will give the presentation and facilitate the group discussion on the following topics:

  • Reasons to shoot manual mode• Understanding the exposure triangle
  • What you can achieve with certain ISO, aperture, and shutter speed values
  • Baseline settings for shooting different situations and techniques
  • Issues, questions or achievements with photos sent in by members
  • If you want to find new and exciting ways to improve your photograph, you don’t want to miss this APG meeting

Please send photos for discussion about using manual mode – either photos where you successfully used manual mode, or photos you have questions about how manual mode may have improved them.
