Learn Manual Mode the Easy Way (How to do it in Seven Days)

September 30, 2021  •  Leave a Comment

I am going on another "List of Seven" journey.  This one is all about learning manual mode on your camera.  To help you get to manual mode I already created several videos on shooting in aperture priority and one on why to use shutter priority.   In this "List of Seven" we will use aperture priority for 3 days, shutter priority for 3 days, and on day 7 go full manual.

Four of the days will have specific guidance and I challenge you to do more just the photo assignment with these two daily tasks.

  1. As you walk around in your day think of how you would use that day's assignment if you were taking pictures even when you don't have your camera in your hand.
  2. Each day and each photo write what did or did not work.


There will be 3 days of Aperture Priority

There will be 3 days of Shutter Priority

On day 7 we go all manual with ourselves.

Come back each of the next 7 days and do this project with me.   I will give guidance for the daily task and will also be mirroring this same task on my YouTube Channel.

I am glad you found my blog.  I am a photographer with a passion for awesome shots.  I go to great lengths to capture many of my photos.  I will re-visit a location over and over knowing there is a spectacular photo just waiting to be had if I am there at the right time.   I also enjoy finding how to do some abstract projects (check out my time-lapse post) and will be writing about them.

Send me a note via my contact page for some projects you would like to see me try and write about.  I am not afraid to try almost any project.  Doing the obscure forces me to do things that I don't do with the typical photo shoot and helps me learn even more.
