- Before we get to the semi-automatic modes in the camera,…let's talk about one of the special fully-automatic…modes that you will find on most cameras today.…And that's the scene modes.…Now why would you want to use a fully-automatic scene mode…when I just told you that you…want to get away from automatic?…Well the thing is that the scene modes…are actually great learning tools.…See the scene modes are setup for a particular type of shot.…For example,…scenic or sports or macro or portraits.…And if you put the camera into that…automatic mode and take a picture with it,…you can then look at the settings that…the camera chose and learn from that.…
You'll learn for example that for a portrait…you might want to have a shallow depth to field.…You might want to have a large…depth to field for a scenic photo.…Or maybe you wanna have a high…shutter speed for fast action.…All of these things the camera…will do for you automatically.…And then you can learn from that and…then apply that to your shots later on.…So let's take a look at a few different cameras…
