Taking Pictures with Your Digital Camera in Auto Mode

Set your digital camera to Auto Mode and it does the thinking for you. Auto Mode allows your camera to set shutter speed, aperture, focus, decide whether you need flash, and other things. All you need to do is aim the camera and press the shutter button.


Set the Mode dial (or buttons) on your camera to the Auto mode.

The dial or button may be labeled Auto or A. Check your camera’s manual if you don’t see this option.


Compose your shot.

You can see what your picture will look like by looking in the viewfinder or at the LED screen.


Press the shutter button down halfway to allow the camera to adjust.

The camera provides an audible signal that it has adjusted to take your picture.


Press the button down fully.

You just took your photo!
