Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video Aperture-Priority Auto mode, part of Learning the Nikon D5200 and D5300.
- One of my favorite shooting modes…is aperture priority.…And this mode is most useful…because it allows you precise control over aperture.…For example, you can dial in the aperture that you want…to control the depth of field.…And then the camera will automatically…calculate and select the right shutter speed…for a proper exposure.…To shoot in aperture priority mode,…just turn the dial to the letter A.…I find this mode quite useful…when shooting portraits…and I really wanna control the blurring of the background.…Aperture priority lets you chose…any aperture that your lens supports.…
To change aperture,…simply turn the command dial.…In these two images, the aperture was manipulated…to control the depth of field.…You can learn more about aperture…in the Foundations of Photography series…here on lynda.com.…Remember, you can also use exposure compensation…to influence aperture priority mode,…so you can further tweak the aperture priority settings.…
