    Why 'M'? P, Av and Tv are useful modes as well and under certain circumstance they might be even better since there are automatic functions included.

    For learning exposure and being creative, "M" mode is perfect

    Cheers

    A warm welcome to CS, rebel81. The beginner stage is always interesting with so much to learn abeit full of doubts but thats where the fun which is attractive about photography with limitless exploration regardless of any level. Try to shoot more often with a group or a friend and figure out what the different buttons and dials do to your image. Also reading up more expands your knowledge on the terms of photography, when in doubt feel free to use the very useful search function in this forum, more often the question has been asked before. Well wishes on your journey in photography!

    No lah...just trying out the 'M' mode first, play with the lighting effect and will also learn other mode as time come by

    Welcome! Browse the wide variety of photography books and magazines at Kino and Borders when you are free. They cover all the technical aspects of photography. As for the artistic aspect, you have to develop your 'eye' over time by observing the works of others.
