Understanding Shooting Modes of DSLRs - Nikon Modes

There are 11 modes of shooting on a Nikon Entry Level camera (D70s, D80, D90..etc). They are:

M = Fully Manual Mode
In this mode, the settings of the camera are fully manual (shutter speeds, aperture, ISO, etc). Most suitable for indoor studio photography, this setting can also be used outdoors. However, due to frequently changing lighting conditions, this mode may cause missed exposures if not properly used.

A = Aperture Priority
In this mode, aperture can be set accordingly and the shutter speed will automatically sync for the proper exposure. This mode is most suitable for photographing with narrow DOF (Depth of Field), where the lens is set at its widest aperture.

S = Shutter Priority
In this mode, the shutter speed can be adjusted according, and in turn the aperture will sync for the proper exposure. This mode is most suitable for photography methods such as panning. For further details about panning, consult THIS article. Read the rest of this entry »
