Taking Your Photography to the Next Level
The Creative zone is the name given by Canon to the shooting modes that offer you the greatest amount of control over your photography. For anyone who has been taking photographs for any period of time, these modes are the backbones of photography. They allow you to influence two of the most important factors for taking great photographs: aperture and shutter speed. To access these modes, you simply turn the Mode dial to the Creative mode of your choice and begin shooting. But wouldn’t it be nice to know exactly what those modes control and how to make them do our bidding? Well, if you want to take that next step in controlling your photography, it is essential that you understand not only how to control these modes, but why and when to adjust them so that you get the results you want. So let’s move that Mode dial to the first of our Creative modes: Program mode.
