I’m always pushing everyone I know with a DSLR to learn how to shoot manual. In turn, I’ve had several friends in the past year ask me to teach them how. This usually happens when they’re across the country from me, and it’s really hard to explain over the phone. I’ve tried finding free online tutorials, but haven’t found any really good comprehensive ones. Truth is, I never shot manual or even attempted it until I went to art school and took a photography class. I looked at f-stop charts and played with shutter speed and just couldn’t get it. Hopefully, this is an easier guide than what I was able to find back in ‘08. If not, give me suggestions! I’ll gladly try again.
