Manual Exposure Mode Tutorial, EASY Way! DSLR Photography Using Nikon D7000 Beginner Lesson




What do you think about this video?

Ellen Goldman: Fantastic! Thank you so much for your help. I just got my first dslr as I shoot my own jewelry. I am working with a macro 60mm lens and i learn so much from your videos! :))) Thanks so much!

channa yapa: no words to say ! thank you for everything! 

boujouj: hey man thanks for this . i really know how to play around with iso and A and shutter , but my question is when i use my sb-900 flash the exposure meter in camera shows that the pic is underexposed if shooting indoors but my pics are good , but i think the camera should realize that there is a flash so the meter should give us the right exposure i dunno if i explained that right or maybe the camera shouldnt realize the flash ? 

hajeh: that was very useful , thank you!

SS DK: Thank for a very good review, on M-mode Watch my videos too-:)

Mauro Pompeu: I have a question for you ...How we can read that grafich with external flash unit attached? I never know act in low light condition, please post something like that best regards...

PhotographersOnUTube: @xoacatl Maybe you didn't zoom in, maybe the distance between the subject and background wasn't enough. Maybe you weren't close to the subject. There are many many factors. Watch my video on Outdoor portraits (blur background) video and follow those steps. f/20 is the opposite. That makes things sharper in the background.

hil6ry: Thank you so much this is so helpful I am studying photography and I needed this

Cheri Lemaire: I soooo appreciate all your time & effort in putting these videos together. I mean REALLY APPRECIATE them. You are a natural instructor...you have the ability to take all of these concepts and lay them out in a GREAT way. Thank you, thank you and thanks again!

PhotographersOnUTube: I do it through skype.

xoacatl: i tried the different f stops on my nikon d70s and couldnt blur the background in A mode....what happend?

MJ Angel: what happens when you meter a black cat using your technique?

Ami Quinton: That's not true it does, I've seen it. Are you sure you're looking in the right spot?

zhapa74: the exposure in this video sucks!!

VeroLaTica: I have seen the Aperture, Shutter Speed, ISO, Light Meter and now this one and they are all great!! Im still learning how to use my camera and these videos are helping me A LOT!! Your videos are the first tutorials I have ever watched and they are very thorough and it gives us newbies hope! Keep them coming because I am now subscribed! :)

Ally Kaminski: Wow, I agree, you are really helping alot. Thank you so much.

PhotographersOnUTube: You are assuming I am deleting your comments. Perhaps you can read the replies I left. Comments are on approval to fight daily spam. I get nothing from deleting comments. I am too busy doing other things in life.

xoacatl: ok i used A mode on my d70s using different f stops on a foot powder bottle like 4.5, 3.8 even 20 to focus on the bottle and blur the background but the back wall didnt blur..thats what i was trying to do

Kurniawan Agung: helllo, do you have tutorial video for shooting moving obect? like a bird? What am i supposed to do, paning? or just increase the shutter speed?

Attiq Bhayo: PhotographersOnUTube Channel is one of the best DSLR beginners guide on whole Youtube.. HATSOFF.. KeEp it up Jibran :)

Virgel Lulab: You are great Man! I'm newbie in photography..and I really love your tuts. keep it up.

daxincumulus: What is exposure time? I saw a night time lapse video. And the guy said to keep the exposure at 20 seconds. I understand negative and positive exposure but don't know what is exposure time. Thanks.

Prvoslav Vojinovic: THANK YOU MAN!!!

Sandeep Prasad: That was really helpful...very informative. Thanks!!

Chris Brown: Bc I VALUE your opinion- I am just about to purchase a Sony A-65, Monday and am trying to determine appropriate lenses. I know you suggested not going with Kit Lenses, so I think I will start with a prime (maybe 85mm). To complement, I am looking for a good zoom lens to capture ocean landscapes. What would you recommend in the approx 70-300mm range? Are their any Minolta or other products you would suggest in the $300-$600 range, as I now found out Minoltas are also compatible with the A65.

Mauro Pompeu: @PhotographersOnUTube thank you very much, I´m waiting for part 3. regards

Dinahhs3: More pls....very helpful

M3Square: Thanks a ton! You can't image how useful these videos are for a new DSLR user such as I!

richard jones: can also adjust with exposure compensation of course

PhotographersOnUTube: You have to press the Fn button. Watch D3200 tutorial video to learn more.

joshhikes: the manual mode tutorial for the D7000 was very helpful. but then I bought a D7100 and it seems surprisingly different. I hope you can help again with an update for manual mode tutorial for the D7100.

Mitch S: Great video!

corona: i am a begginer on photography and try to lern as much i can so i like your video and it was really helpful ...thanks

MaPee1982: Perfect shot but quite a few glare and reflections on the pedals @ 6:57 I just thought if you had used a polarizer, it probably would've given you a much better result. But of course polarizers are a whole different subject. Great vid. The community needs more people like you.

PhotographersOnUTube: @mpompeu You can't. Because the camera doesn't know if you have a softbox attach to the flash or where the flash is facing or how high the ceiling is. When you're adding flash to this, you're adding a new element to your exposure. I'll do a video on this which is going to be the 3 part of your manual exposure using flash. Remember, flash's output is controlled by aperture or ISO, not shutter speed.

PhotographersOnUTube: @jhammer256 No, the metering mode does matter because a. it gives you pretty accurate recommendation to to balance the exposure most of the time and b. it makes the process much faster. If you the meter didn't tell you anything, then you'd take a picture, view it, then take it again until you get the correct exposure. However, IF the meter is being tricked then you don't have to change the metering mode because you can adjust the shutter speed/aperture ISO yourself until you get correct exposure

PhotographersOnUTube: In simple words, yes but to make things very complicated then you can change shutter speed in bulb mode or you can manipulate shutter speed in exposure compensation. But change these things in manual mode and you'll be fine. I shoot in aperture mode most of the time and indoors I shoot in manual when using a speed light. I first teach the basics and then build on it. You'll have to watch other videos to see which mode is better for you.

THATCRAZYGUY: i love you man, ......NO HOMO

PhotographersOnUTube: @wildbeard No not yet. I'll soon do a tutorial on manual exposure using manual flash. When you use your SB900, you ignore the light meter. It will say your picture will be under exposed but flash will fix that. So ignore the light meter. Try these settings.. f/4, 1/125 sec ISO 400 flash power 1/8 or 1/4 depending on how high your ceiling is. Watch my basic flash tutorial so you learn about angles.

081619802378: Hi Jibran, I have a little question, when we use the manual mode with a bounce flash, then do the light meter give us the correct reading ? (because before clicking there is no flash) Thank you, I learned a lot form your videos

esorlaksa: I'M A BEGINNER AND I CAN TELL YOU THIS CHANGES EVERYTHING^^ THANK YOU^^

amer akhtar: Can you please make a video on d7100 doing the intial set up its my 1st dslr and i am having very hard time. Thank you

sojourner829: You mention your other videos on aperture, etc. Where are they. How about some links. I sure can't find them.

PhotographersOnUTube: Sure, give me sometime and I'll do it.

edpannewyork: thanks for this video... am learning basic adjustments with my new camera the quickest way...

prabhjeet babrah: awesome explanation, thanks friend :)

gnn545: Your videos are great! You said you were going to do a video on how to correct those "3 out of 10" instances when the camera does not nail the light...have you had a chance to do it? I looked for the word "expos" in all your videos but could not find it. Thanks!

jonahmoffatt: just got myself a Canon 1100D. found this video very helpful as this is all new to me

Zainab Hassan: Click on the button that has a star above it on the up right and it will be displayed =)

necro609: I have a Nikon d3100... and the default lense goes only up to f4.5... what lense can you recommend for me? thanks...
