If you look at the Mode dial on the top of your camera, you'll see a series of letters on here, and even a series of icons. For example, you'll see M for Manual, A for Aperture Priority, S for Shutter Priority, or even P. Now, I'm here to tell you that P is not for perfect. P is the program mode, the fully automatic mode. On some cameras you'll see a green square mode. And I want to make sure that you get out of these fully automatic mode.
