Did you just get a new camera and have no idea where to start? Or have you had a nice one for a while and have never learned to use manual mode?

You’re not alone. I would guess that the majority of people you see taking photos with a DSLR camera have barely used any of the functions other than the automatic settings. As mom’s, we don’t really have a lot of spare time to learn to use the other functions, and let’s be honest, the automatic modes take pretty nice pictures. I know when I started I was afraid I would screw up and miss a great picture trying to mess around in manual mode so I just stuck to auto.

Manual mode

As I learned about aperture, shutter speed, and ISO, I realized I had been missing out on so much. Yes, you can continue using your camera as a point and shoot, but you will be amazed how easy it can be to learn the tricks of the pros and start taking amazing photographs in manual mode.

Once I learned the basics, I became obsessed. I started reading everything I could, takings hundreds of photos a day, practicing every technique I learned, and now other people trust me to capture their memories, which is something  I love.

You don’t have to be a professional to start taking great pictures of your family. You just need to know a few tips and tricks and the basics of using manual mode.

In no time at all, you will be taking pictures (in manual mode) of your kids like a pro!
