Today, I’ll show you what manual mode does, how it effects your shot and when you can use it to take better photos. 

Manual mode forces you to take your time when taking a photo. It is a great mode to be in when you have plenty of time to get the shot. If I am just walking around in a low pressured environment, I’ll put the camera into manual mode. Also when I am shooting the stars with astrophotography, there is so little light about so having the camera in manual mode is vital. Also when shooting landscapes…if I have the time to set my camera up and get the settings to where I want, I want full control over my camera, so manual mode is the best mode to be in.
