Beginners

If you've just started using a DSLR or Mirrorless camera, or you've been using one for a while and want to move on from the auto mode, there are some basic concepts that you should know so you can take control over your photos.

The articles below are specially curated to help you lean the basics. Each section below progressivly builds on the articles in the previous sections, so start at the top and work your way down.

Exposure Basics

First things first: In order to take control over your photos you need to take the camera out of 'auto' mode. The articles in this section will teach you about the most important first steps in learning about exposure and how the various settings affect the look of your photos. You can go through these in any order, but they will read better if you start with Aperture, then Shutter Speed, followed by ISO and finally putting it all together (coming soon).
