What tip do you wish you knew sooner?
I used auto mode for far too long. One day someone said to me, “There’s no need to be afraid to use manual mode. Switch from auto to manual and just start playing. If you get a terrible photo, just try again.” I did switch over. First, I studied up on ISO, shutter speed and aperture. It was a little bit of a struggle at first, but I discovered using manual mode was a process of trial and error. It gets easier. The more I use it, the better I get at choosing the correct settings. After a while, I wasn’t afraid anymore. Now, I just need to tackle shooting in RAW.
