However another fundamental thing that most, if not every photographer, wishes they had done sooner is, to convert from automatic to manual mode on your DSLR.

What is Manual Mode?

Manual mode is one of the main settings on your DSLR, it makes it possible for you to manually control the shutter speed, ISO and aperture.

These settings work together to enable you to make the photographs lighter or darker by adjusting your exposure manually, as well adjusting the amount of depth of field you get which depends if you use a narrow or wide aperture.

Why You Need To Use Manual Mode

If you already use manual mode on a regular basis, then you will know and understand why it is so important that you do so, in order to improve the quality of your photography – because not only do you have more control over your DSLR, you are also able to experiment on so many different aspects.

The benefits of using Manual Mode is endless in comparison to using Automatic mode,  and we could go into great depth as to why, but to put it simply, we have outlined some of the most essential advantages you have when you use manual mode:

  • You can decide what your Focal Point is.
  • Ability to control the amount of light in your photographs.
  • You can capture MORE bokeh in your photographs by adjusting the Aperture yourself
  • You can choose if, when and how much to use the ISO setting
  • You will understand more about photography because you’re in “the driving seat” not the passenger seat.
  • You can implement your creativity and make your photographs look different and more beautiful
