How to go from Auto Mode to Manual Mode to Make the Most of your Camera

As a photo educator, I've heard it all:

  • I got a nice camera awhile back, but it was really overwhelming, so it's still sitting in the box/bag and it has been collecting dust for awhile.

  • I just recently got my first 'big kid' camera, and I was super excited to use it, but it was really intimidating, so I haven't really done much with it yet.

  • I have a good camera that I use fairly often, but I only use it in auto mode, and I know there is so much more I can do with it.

  • I think I have a camera and some lenses that are decent, but I don't know what they do or how to use them, so they're just sitting there right now.

If one of the above, or something akin to it, sounds familiar to your situation, YOU ARE NOT ALONE! This is such a common thing that I hear, and it's nothing to be embarrassed by, and it's certainly nothing to feel guilty about. It IS something we can do something about, though. You got that camera for a reason, and it's time to put it to use.


But that's stressful to even know where to begin with putting your camera to use, right? That's where I come in! I help you start from zero - how do you turn your camera, how do you change your manual settings, how do you decide what settings to use, etc. When you're finished with the course, you will know how to use your camera to the best of its ability.


You will be taking photos that are properly exposed.


You will be taking photos that keep the principles of photography in mind.


You will be comfortable with changing your settings.


You will feel like you are actually using your camera.


And then after you finish the course, I will still be there to help with whatever you need, because you will have access to a private Facebook group just for this course. There, I will continue to answer questions, whether it's clarifying something from the course, answering a new questions, helping you with an editing question, or anything else you run into as you start to use your camera more often and to the best of its ability. And I can't wait to help you get to know your camera better!
