Photography Shooting Modes: What Those Icons on the Dial Mean (Infographic)

Photography is easier and cheaper but there are still many options

Professional level photography is easily accessible as prices drop and technology pushes forward. But as cameras improve, shoving more and more options into the mix, confusion can set in and menu blindness may actually hurt your shots instead of help. While true professionals usually shoot on Manual Mode, there are other selections available that may be a better choice for those that don’t know all of the nuances of ISO, aperture and shutter speed.

In the infographic (courtesy of Digital Camera World) below you can see what those little icons mean. Knowing what each stands for may ultimately lead to having a stronger command of the results you achieve in your photography.
