Manual Mode in DSLR – A Tutorial on How to Use Manual Mode In Photography

Manual Mode in DSLR :

In all DSLR cameras, we have auto mode available which can be used to click any picture given lighting conditions are adequate. We also have semi auto mode like A (Aperture Priority) mode where we control the lens opening and camera takes care of rest of of the setting. So, then why do we have manual mode in DSLR?  is  there any specific reason or Auto mode / Semi Auto Mode are not good enough ? Lets find out manual mode in DSLR and How to Use Manual Mode In Photography

Manual Mode in DSLR - A Tutorial on How to Use Manual Mode In Photography

All these question pops up when you dive into this photography world. Photography is not just about taking pictures or keeping your light meter to 0 to have correct exposure. Its lot more than this. Its more about how much DOF you want in your picture, how much motion you want to show inside your picture or how you want sunlight to use in your shot ? There are lot more situation like and you need to take control of every bit of your camera to get those desired results. And that is why we have manual mode in DSLR.

Manual Mode in DSLR : More Than Getting Just Right Exposure

To get the correct exposure we must know  the 3 basic pillars of Photography. If you haven’t gone through my article for Aperture, Shutter Speed and ISO, then I would suggest you to get this understanding first and then come back here to get the clear picture of Exposure triangle and manual mode in DSLR. We know that these 3 primary elements work together to capture an image.

Manual Mode in DSLR - A Tutorial on How to Use Manual Mode In Photography

  • Increasing the aperture size, allows more light to fall into the camera and reducing it decreasing the light.
  • Slowing down the shutter speed, allows the light to fall in to the camera for a longer time and increasing it makes that duration shorter.
  • Increasing the ISO, increases the light sensitivity and thus increases the exposure, decreasing Depth of field.

How to Use Manual Mode In Photography :

In this part we will see How to Use Manual Mode In Photography. How to turn it on in a DSLR and where *& how we could practice manual mode.

What is Manual Mode :

Manual mode lets user to select Aperture, Shutter Speed and ISO independently to get the correct exposure of  an image. This is the only mode where each small camera setting will be adjusted by you which will give the ultimate control over how to photo looks or rather how you want your picture to come.

Except Manual mode, in all other mode you get the control on one aspect of setting and all other settings taken care by camera itself. You can go through this article to get the understanding of different modes available in camera.

How to Turn Manual Mode ON :

Turn the mode dial to the big “M” and camera goes into manual mode. Its now just a camera without its brain, you have to use your own brain to get the most out of it.

Manual Mode in DSLR - A Tutorial on How to Use Manual Mode In Photography

How Manual Mode Works:

In Manual Mode, we set the Aperture, Shutter Speed and ISO independently and then camera meters the scene depending upon the lighting condition. By gathering information from the light meter, camera tells you how the final image will be,  will it be underexposed, over exposed  or correctly exposed ? You can then adjust any of these  setting from white balance to ISO and many more, until you get desired output.

When to Use:

There are many quotes I found on Google saying “Real Photographers use Manual Mode”. Well I am not really a big believer of such lines as Real Photographers uses all available tools to get the shot done and in some case they are not afraid of using any automation when its more efficient.

You never want to miss photo by setting up everything in manual mode, rather use semi automatic mode and get the job done.

Below are some of the best way to get started with Manual Mode :

You can photograph static subject with same lighting condition. Like a landscape shot. You can start with Aperture Priority and keep playing with Shutter speed and ISO. You can then go with different metering modes and once you know what each setting has effect on final image, then finally you can switch to Manual mode and play with different setting like focusing, white balance, ISO, shutter speed, metering etc and see how thing can get changed with each minor change.

Try practicing manual mode in different lighting condition and this would be the best way to learn. Just go out n keep clicking pictures. Start with setting aperture n then shutter speed, play with ISO, metering modes, white balance etc. See the output and click again -> change setting -> click again -> see the output -> change setting, repeat this cycle until you don’t need to read this big article on manual mode 😛

Drawbacks In Manual Mode:

This camera mode will take you back to the early days where everything in a camera was manual. And photographers change the different settings of camera to get the desired result. Most pro-photographers use this mode because it gives control over everything in your camera like white balance, ISO, metering, focusing type or shutter speed.. Everything.

Manual Mode would be time consuming in start and you might feel why to practice this when we have everything automatic in camera. At that point you should ask yourself, you should  have got point n shoot camera rather than a DSLR. There are any scenarios where auto mode or semi auto mode would not work and you have to switch ON you manual mode to get the job done.

  • Sometimes in a scenario where you need to get your job done quickly, in those case manual mode takes time to adjust.
  • It also requires full in-depth knowledge of how camera works and what setting has what effect on final output. Without this you will not able to decide which things  needs to change which something goes wrong with your picture. So better understand everything first, try A,S and P mode and then only jump to Manual Mode.

Macro Photography on a Budget – Cheap Macro Photography Techniques

Cheap Macro Photography Techniques Without A Dedicated Lens:

Macro Photography is getting popular day by day among professional and rookie photographers. Its a stunning way to see the magnified world which you have never seen before. However, cost of a dedicated lens is way too high and often becomes a barrier to get the entry in this genre. Today we will discuss how to do Macro Photography on a budget and what all are the equipment required for Cheap Macro Photography Techniques without any fancy dedicated lens. If you want high quality professional shots, there’s simply no alternatives. However, if you’re just looking to get a taste of macro photography and want to have some fun then check for below options:

Macro Photography on a Budget

Macro Photography on a Budget options :

Extension Tubes:

Extension tubes are the tube shape object which sits between lens optics and sensor. It increases the distance between your camera sensor and the lens optics. Because of which our camera can focus on closer subject to get the macro shot. It simply magnifies the image due to which subject looks much closer and magnified.

In this method, we attach the extension tube to camera body and then a lens to extension tubes like image below :Macro Photography on a Budget

Unfortunately, extension tubes doesn’t have any focus mechanism so you will have to focus on subject manually which is quite tough work given the subject would be highly magnified. So, its always better to get a tripod for this type of photography and a shutter release button to remove any camera shake. You can also use a DIY diffuser made of plastic or cardboard to softens flash light when shutter click button releases.

You will need:

  • A DSLR
  • A Kit lens (18-55) or a prime lens 35mm or 50mm (preferably).
  • Extension tubes
  • DIY flash diffuser (optional).

Reversed Lens:

Our lens is mainly designed to take picture which is larger in real life like a tall building, here camera reduces the image of building to a small area called sensor. So, considering this if we reverse the lens then camera will magnifies the size of subjects on sensor which in turn called as Macro Photography.

Reverses rings is a camera mount adapter which allows you to reverse your lens to gets fit with a camera on a lens mount. This seems strange if you have never used this technique before because first time you will see lens pins which actually talks with camera are visible and internal glass elements also which moves in and out while focusing. You will also see aperture ring outside which control the opening of lens electronically. Its also not that easy specially handhold, it will require lot of practice and patience too while shooting macro with all this manual technique.

You will need:

  • A DSLR
  • A Kit lens (18-55) or a prime lens 35mm or 50mm (preferably).
  • Reverse ring.

While this technique is one of the best ways to get a taste of macro photography but it also exposes your lens to outer environment and dust can easily get inside it. So you better use this technique inside a closed environment like a room or use lens cap if you use outside. 

You will loose the camera brain so how to Focus : 

In reverse ring technique, the pins which communicates to camera are no more in contact with lens adapter so you are going to loose all good features of your camera like Auto-Focusing or changing aperture using rotate dial. So how you will achieve focusing and control aperture? 

With the lens mounted backwards, your can focus on subject by moving the camera back and forth, which will be just inches from your subject, back and forth until the area you want sharp is in focus. For aperture you need to control aperture ring manually and check the exposure through viewfinder if subject is dark or bright. You need to move aperture ring which can be found on outer most area of your lens.

Macro Photography on a Budget

Control DOF – Depth of Field :

Its quite interesting and amazing how DOF gets affected with aperture. Since we are moving aperture manually so it can get suddenly dark at f/16.0 or too bright at f/1.8. Shooting like this can be very difficult at times for a couple of reasons. First, at large apertures like f/1.4 on a sunny day with a nice bright image in the viewfinder, you get a very narrow DOF. The smallest shift in your camera position changes what is in focus of subject. 

Suppose your are trying to get a macro shot of flower. With a bigger opening of lens, you will get flower petals in focus while rest of the part is out of focus due to very narrow DOF. On the other hand if you will shoot with smallest of aperture like f/10.0 or f/16.0 then complete flower would be in focus but you will see same close up macro shot of petals in this picture. So it depends heavily on aperture specially if you are shooting handheld.

Stacked Lenses :

In this lens stacking technique, we usually use telephoto lens mounted in camera like a normal lens then taking a shorter focal length lens and attach them using a filter adapter. Shorter focal length lens mounts in a reversed position. When we are doing this, we are essentially using the reversed lens as a supplementary close-up lens. So using the above formula reversing a 100 mm lens would be a +10 Close-up.

You will need:

  • A DSLR
  • A Telephoto lens and one with prime lens.
  • Macro-coupling ring.

This method is little bit more complicated than other two explained above. To stack two lenses you need a filter to filter adapter. These are also sold as male to male adapters or as macro-coupling rings. If you can’t find an adapter with the filter size you need, you can mate it with a step-up or step-down ring like this :

Cheap Macro Photography Techniques

A problem with stacked lenses is vignetting or the darkening of the corners of the frame. This is why it is always a good idea to use a fast lens, like a 50 mm f/1.8 or 35 mm f/1.8 as your reversed lens.

Diopters:

Diopters are the easiest way to get into macro photography world. Its just a optics, a filter like attachment which magnifies your subject. They’re very easy to use, just screw one or more diopters onto your lens just like you would with any lens filter.

Cheap Macro Photography TechniquesYou will have to move in very close to your subject to achieve focus, and optical quality won’t always be as good as some of the other options presented here, but you might be very pleased with the results. Because they don’t cost much, are easy to use, and take up very little space in your camera bag, you might consider this for a try.

 

Sample Picture of  Macro using Reverse Ring technique :

 

Cheap Macro Photography Techniques
Needle and Thread : Shot With D3300 -18-55 Kit lens using Reverse Ring
Macro Photography on a Budget
Macro of Plant : Nikon D3300 with 18-55 Kit using Reverse Ring

These are the most used budget way to try macro photography. I am sure there are few others as well but above 4 method are being used mostly in photographers community. I encourage you to try one of these methods and who knows this could just become your new photography obsession.

Mirrorless Camera vs DSLR War – Best Entry Level Mirrorless Camera in 2018

Mirrorless_pixelrajeev

We are in 2018 now, where camera is getting smaller and lenses are bulkier and longer. With not so much technological advancements in DSLR and how they are implemented with mirror tehchnologies, Mirrorless cameras are benefited from this and they are now much more improved than what they were 3-4 years back. Here in this blog we will see Mirrorless Camera vs DSLR War – Best Entry Level Mirrorless camera in 2018 ?

When we look back we could see there was a significant difference in DSLR and Mirrorless cameras and that is why most people were inclined towards DSLR. But in 2018, the gap is largely closed such as autofocus system is immensely improved, high resolution EVF (Electronic View Finder) is fast enough and there are many more.

Mirrorless Camera vs DSLR War :

The major difference between Mirrorless camera and DSLR is that latter fitted with internal mirror mechanism that reflects the image acquired by lens through phase-detection AF module on ceiling of camera before exiting through optical viewfinder. Once shutter is pressed and focus is locked, mirror flips up exposing sensor which captures the image. In mirrorless, there is no mirror so light passes through lens, camera and then finally on image sensor, on the other hand its advantages are, they’re usually smaller and lighter due to lack of mirror.

Limitations with Mirrorless Cameras :

  • Slow AF :

Earlier mirrorless cameras lacks phase detection AF system, means they had to use contrast-detect technology to acquire focus, which is slower than phase-detect AF found in DSLR. However, now a days many mirrorless cameras use on-sensor phase-detection AF, mostly in combination with contrast-detect AF to produce AF speeds to competes with DSLR.

  • Continuous Shooting Speed :

Since there’s no mechanical mirror means mirrorless cameras are generally capable of much higher continuous shooting speeds.

  • Lack of extensive library of lenses and accessories that DSLRs offer.
  • Viewfinders in Mirrorless : Most digital cameras do not have a viewfinder, instead you can preview the photo you’re about to take by looking at the LCD on the back of camera. Some digital cameras however do have built-in viewfinders, which have several advantages including no battery drain and the ability to use them in bright light.

Though there are few points in favour of DSLR currently but I afraid this gap will be closed soon too :

  1. Support for Native Lenses : Since much of the technological differences are closed between DSLR and Mirrorless camera but still in terms of native lenses support, most consumer will find DSLR as the only answer. Currently DSLR supports all kind of lenses from prime to telephoto or even a budget lens. Most people are not ready to spend $1000 only on single lens. That’s practically not affordable. DSLR is still the way to go for beginners and Photography Enthusiast. 
  2. Quality vs Prices and Affordability : This is another point where DSLR are way ahead from Mirrorless. In an entry level Mirrorless camera price you could easily get good enough DSLR camera to get you started with at least one extra lens. It’s a huge gap still I feel and it will take time when Mirrorless camera gets inside the minds of Budget Oriented people who looks for great quality image without spending lot on high fancy stuffs.

Mirrorless Camera in Future :

The way mirrorless camera were in news in second half of 2017, it should not be a surprise if we see 2018 as a mirrorless year for camera industry. Many brands are already planning slew of Mirrorless camera releases in first half of 2018. The demand for these camera are also increasing quite rapidly due to its portable size. DSLR has to bear the cost of using old conventional mirror mechanism method still in 2018, there are no major breakthrough in DSLR world and this is where Mirrorless camera gets ahead now in terms of bridging gaps or even extending it beyond and far from DSLR.

On one hand companies like Panasonic, Sony or Olympus are already geared up for 2018 battle, the big brother Nikon and Canon needs to step up to keep competitive in market with latest trends before it gets too late for them.
