When I first brought my first DSLR camera I had know idea how hard it was to take a great picture without knowing how to correctly work it and I definitely didn’t know how to take a picture in manual mode by utilizing some of the key functions which is aperture, shutter speed, and ISO. When I first heard about these 3 functions it was like someone was speaking a different language to me. I couldn’t understand nothing about this camera for the life of me. I even went to a one day training class that was suppose to teach me how to use a DSLR camera and I still walked out of there clueless and confused. I was so upset because I really wanted learn how to use my camera in manual mode. I honestly gave up and just started taking pictures using the automatic function.
Until one day I was watching a YouTube video that displayed a picture of a visual aid that explained how to use aperture, shutter speed, and the ISO function on a DSLR camera. I couldn’t believe that this even existed and I just knew there had to be more of these visual aids on Pinterest because of course Pinterest had pictures of everything. So I immediately started my search and was happy to come across so many elaborate visual aids. I started studying them all day and was shocked at how fast I was starting to understand all these key functions on my camera! I even decided to pick up my camera and take a few pictures and the pictures were actually looking good and getting better and better the more I took pictures. I was so excited. These visual aids really did inspire me to start taking pictures again. I even plan on going out and pratices some more.
Below are some visual aids that really helped me understand my DSLR camera. Hopefully it will help you too!!!
