I recently bought a Nikon D3100 and a Nikkor lens 18-200mm. I have taken a lot of pics of my friends and family. And am really happy with the results. I have tried all the auto modes. Being a big fan shallow depth of field, using the mode A (aperture priority) came easy to me. But I still hesitate in using the manual mode. In fact there are two queries on this front: Why do we need to use the manual mode at the first place and secondly, what all settings do I need to make when working in the manual mode?

It’s quite simple, the manual mode is used to take the control of the camera, that is, the way camera exposes. Though as simple as it sounds more difficult it is to make appropriate exposure settings in this mode. You have to independently set aperture and shutter speed for the prime purpose of setting the exposure. However as a beginner you don’t need to worry about this mode!
