  • Most of time whenever I try using manual mode on my Canon DSLR, I get very frustrated because my pictures most of time come out too overexposed and when that happens I try to manipulate the ISO, shutter speed, and aperture. But that never seems to help or I'm just very beginner in photography. Any tips or tricks?

  • Í actually think she s rather sweet and talks slowly while explaining things so it gets Into your head. I can even jot things down at the same time. There is another lady here on YouTube taking about focusing. She got thousands of thumbs up, but I couldn't follow her accent and it dipped down all the time so you didn't hear all the words. So it's just how well you can follow the person and not that the person likeJana is bad.

  • Jana:
    I have a few questions after trying the example your first suggestion (f/2.0 and 1/80th at ISO100), my images came out too dark or too bright. So here goes...
    @1:00: "When your ISO goes up, your image goes brighter". So what happens when your aperture goes up and what happens when your shutter goes up? Don't they all make the image brighter?
    @2:35: "Shutter is this little flap - like a curtain - that dictates how much light comes in" I thought you said that was the aperture.
    @4:00: You mention you were adjusting the shutter. How did you know how much to adjust it up or down? Maybe it's to do with the camera's light meter - but your camera can't have one since you don't mention it??? I'm more confused.
    @4:40 "Now going (from f/2.0) to f/5.6 - the depth of field isn't going to be there so much" - What does that mean?
    You also mention that you like soft portraits but when you show two side by side the girl looks the same to me.
