    HI Rajeev,
    When using manual mode, I wanted to know that irrespective of the situations which one do you choose to set first?
    Aperture, Shutter or ISO?

      Hi Prajwal,
      Thanks for your comment. To your question, there is no such standard that you need to set you aperture first then shutter speed or ISO. It depends on what you are shooing in which condition.

      Suppose you are shooting a landscape in a cloudy condition. Here the first thing you need to take care of Aperture, you can not open your lens to f/1.8 or f/1.2 to get maximum light, if you do this you will not get everything in focus. For landscape you have to use f/16.0 or f/10.0 to get everything in focus. At this aperture lens doesn’t allow much light to reach to sensor. So now, to compensate you have set your shutter speed, if you have a tripod then you can afford to slow down shutter below 1/60 to get enough light but if you are shooting handheld then 1/60 is the lowest shutter speed one can shoot, below this camera can shake. Now click picture, if image is ok that well n good, if its still dark then you need to use 3rd pillar which is ISO. You can increase ISO by 400 or 500 to keep shot clear n sharp enough without introducing much noise.

      So basically, it all depends on situation. Anything you an set first and then play with other two aspect accordingly.
      Hope I helped you. 🙂

        Thanks a ton Rajeev.
        I am having Nikon d5300 with kit lens and planning to buy a prime. But i am in a big confusion whether to go for 35mm or 50mm because they both costs same amount.

        • pixelrajeev says:

          Right Prajwal, Both costs almost same. I also had same confusion a year back.
          If you are more into portrait photography then you should go for 50mm. The reason is obviously its focal length, its not very wide and keeps the subject really tight in a frame with lovely bokeh effect. In crop sensor camera it would work on focal length of 75mm (50+50*1/2).

          35mm is all-rounder lens I feel, you can take lovely portraits if you get close enough to subject, and also at the same time you get enough wide angle to shoot street photography as well. 35mm is almost equivalent to what human eye sees, so its more natural. This lens is great for street photography or even for landscapes.

          I opted for 35mm, you can check picture on my Instagram account.
