FREE Photography Cheat Sheet
I remember all too well how difficult it was in the beginning, shooting in manual mode during those first few months. I wanted so badly to just master my camera – to have complete control over all of my settings, to create beautiful photographs all on my own.
So I studied and practiced. I learned all that I could about the elements of creating great photos – exposure, composition, perspective, etc. I learned about shutter speed, making the most of available light, noise levels and ISO,
