Camera Modes

Automatic Mode

Auto mode tells your camera to use it’s best judgement to select shutter speed, aperture, ISO, white balance, focus and flash to take the best shot that it can.

Portrait Mode

automatically select a large aperture (small number) which helps to keep your background out of focus (ie it sets a narrow depth of field – ensuring your subject is the only thing in focus and is therefore the centre of attention in the shot).

Macro Mode

Macro mode lets you move your closer into your subject to take a close up picture. It’s great for shooting flowers, insects or other small objects.

Landscape Mode

This mode is almost the exact opposite of portrait mode in that it sets the camera up with a small aperture (large number) to make sure as much of the scene you’re photographing will be in focus as possible (ie it give you a large depth of field).

Sports Mode

Photographing moving objects is what sports mode (also called ‘action mode’ in some cameras) is designed for. It is ideal for photographing any moving objects including people playing sports, pets, cars, wildlife etc.

Night Mode

This is a really fun mode to play around with and can create some wonderfully colorful and interesting shots.

Movie Mode

This mode extends your digital camera from just capturing still images to capturing moving ones.

Aperture Priority Mode (A or AV)

This mode is really a semi-automatic (or semi-manual) mode where you choose the aperture and where your camera chooses the other settings (shutter speed, white balance, ISO etc) so as to ensure you have a well balanced exposure.

Shutter Priority Mode (S or TV)

Shutter priority is very similar to aperture priority mode but is the mode where you select a shutter speed and the camera then chooses all of the other settings.

Program Mode (P)

Program mode is similar to Auto but gives you a little more control over some other features including flash, white balance, ISO etc.

Manual Mode

In this mode you have full control over your camera and need to think about all settings including shutter speed, aperture, ISO, white balance, flash etc.


Conceptual Self Portrait

The definition of conceptual is “relating to or based on mental concepts”. This photo is related to me because i play baseball. Out of 3 other sports i have played, baseball has been my favorite so far. Playing baseball clears my mind.

This is one of Cindys pieces of work. I believe that this piece is trying to communicate clowns. I think clowns are scary, but others might think otherwise. Clowns are mainly seen at kid’s parties. Maybe that’s why she decided to use a clown for her pictures.
