Get out of fully automatic exposure mode

 

Why?

Well, for starters, getting out of fully automatic exposure mode and working with both aperture priority (A or AV modes) and shutter priority (T or TV modes) exposure modes will get us thinking more about composition.

And when we work in either aperture priority or shutter priority we can begin to control tonality.

Specifically, we’ll start out controlling tonality, with the exposure compensation function.

Furthermore, we can pick metering patterns.

And when we consider all of the above, it gets us more involved in our process of creating photographs. 

On top of that, and is a stepping stone to prepare us for using fully manual exposure mode.

How it works when we get out of fully automatic exposure mode

When we work in aperture priority, we pick the aperture (f-stop) and the camera will set to a corresponding shutter speed.

Additionally, when we get out of fully automatic exposure mode, we have the option of picking ISO manually or setting ISO automatically.

Furthermore, if we work in shutter priority, we pick the shutter speed and the camera will set to a corresponding aperture.

And, as in AV mode,  we have the option of picking ISO manually or setting ISO automatically. 

So, what does getting out of fully automatic exposure mode get us?

First, when we get out of fully automatic exposure mode it gets us more involved in thinking.
Specifically, it gets us thinking about what we’re doing in terms of how camera operation and intent of composition relate.

Second, when we start with our exposure compensation setting at zero, we get a standard tonality.
And a standard tonality is where we begin to get the tonality we want. 
Furthermore,  this is based on our choice of metering patterns/modes. metering.

And third, we can get the opportunity to increase or decrease tonality using exposure compensation.

As a result, when we get out of fully automatic exposure mode, this is an excellent way to prepare for working in manual exposure mode.

And even if we decide not to explore working in manual exposure mode, we’re still relying more on our mind than a machine to make our pictures.
