Join Joseph "PhotoJoseph" Linaschke for an in-depth discussion in this video Introduction, part of Photography 101 (2012).
In this section, we're going to look at the two most commonly used modes on your camera. …Aperture Priority mode, and Shutter Priority. …With Aperture Priority, we can control our aperture to control our depth of field. …So we can make an object like this church behind us, go more or less in and out of focus. …And the camera's going to automatically figure out the shutter speed for us. …We'll also look at Shutter Priority mode, where we can make the shutter longer or shorter. …So we can make action blur or make it freeze and see how the camera compensates …for that. We're also going to take a look at the …Exposure Compensation dial and see how that works in a real world situation.…
So let's get started. …
