    Not sure if I posted this.
    I want to get out of auto mode so I like to get some help with the diffrent settings on my camera. Is there any helpful info out there that is easy to understand. I'm really more the type where you show me once and I've got it. But I'm lost right now.

    ISO - Sensitivity to light... smaller number less sensitive (darker) higher number more sensitive (maximum will generally generate some noise in the image)

    Aperture - How large the shutters open to let light in... smaller number opens larger & will tend to blur what your not focusing on... larger number smaller opening will allow everything to be in focus

    Shutter Speed - How long the shutters are open and exposing the image receptor to light...

    Using all 3 in combination to create images = Art

    I picked up a book @ the local B&N called "The Photography Bible" New Edition... it was a really good easy read that gives a brief history of photography, how cameras work, how to use the technical factors, and tons of techniques for photography.
