Photography Cheat Sheet

If you have a DSLR camera, hopefully you’re not like me and use it mostly on the AUTO setting. While this is a decent place to take pictures, there are near unlimited possibilities to discover using the manual mode of your camera.

If you ARE like me, then the manual mode of your camera intimidates the heck out of you and every time you mess with the dial, you take pictures that wouldn’t be worthy of gracing the bottom of the bird cage.

LivingInTheStills has created a great cheat sheet for using the manual options on your digital camera.

From exposure to ISO settings, the chart below is pretty easy to follow if you want to take better pictures.

I plan on printing this one out and dropping a copy or two in my camera bag.
