Stop Shooting Auto! is a set of lessons in exposure, and how to get more out of your digital SLR. Shooting in automatic mode is easier than using Aperture Priority, Shutter Priority, or Manual modes, but it will often not get the shot that you have in your mind’s eye. I want to demystify the controls on your camera in a way that’s easy to understand, without throwing around a bunch of jargon.
The best way to use this site is to go through Exposure Lessons in Order, and follow along by trying out the exercises. Feel free to skip around, if you’d rather. And please ask questions! Leave a comment if you want to know something or want to add something to what I’ve written.
