    Red face Hello, shutterbugs

    I signed up as a member only today. I "graduated" to a DSLR last year after years of using compacts on auto mode. But I'm still using my camera on auto mode. Maybe I'll pick up a thing or two here about aperture and shutter priority and use my camera the way it's supposed to be used!

    its ok with auto mode.
    when u free, u can take note the setting of auto mode, then u try it to manual, modify it, then see the different, u can learn from that.

    Try using google and searching for the following titles:
    1. ISO
    2. Shutter Speed
    3. Apperture

    I think learning these 3 would be a good start..

    Oh, you are a 400D user too!
    A warm welcome to you, AmySkadian!
    Well, 400D on Auto mode works good... until you start to see marvellous compositions, exposures and lightings by the experienced photogs in this forum. Then generally we will slowly switch to some other more interesting modes..
    Have a good time here.
