Understanding photography, you only need very few camera modes to bring your photography to the highest level.
Aperture priority and shutter priority give you everything all the other camera modes (like portrait mode, macro mode, sports mode,...) can do, with much more control over the look of your images. Now that you understand the effects of Aperture and Shutter Speed, you can take control over your images.
Sorry, people, we are currently having technical issues with the questions on our website, so we set it back to the old version. It will be back online very soon.
