Using Your Digital Camera

9 Digital Camera Settings for Every Photographer to Discover

Aperture and Shutter Priority Mode - Where to find it: Usually on the dial on top of your digital camera.
Any photograph has both an aperture and a shutter speed. The aperture regulates how wide the lens opening is, while the shutter speed regulates how long the shutter was left open. These two items, in tandem, regulate the exposure of a photograph.

In an automatic mode, the digital camera chooses its own combination of aperture and shutter speed to create a good exposure - you don’t have to do any of the thinking. But sometimes, you want more control over your digital camera, and that’s when shutter and aperture priority come into play.
Aperture priority mode allows you control over the depth of field of an image. The more open the lens is, the more shallow the depth of field is.
