“ Karlo has proven his excellent ability to teach photography concepts. I may be biased, but when it comes to getting photographers off auto mode, this is now the only guide I’d recommend.” – Brett Fox.
There is a common fear behind leaving Auto Mode and taking full control of your camera. Much of that fear is needlessly entrenched in our minds.
We all have a photography comfort zone, and it can be quite scary to push out of it. In fact, much of the time, the Auto Mode can do an O-K job — so why should we even bother?
(Great question! Let me show you)
But today’s cameras have numerous buttons, dials, and menu items that can overwhelm any photographer.
You may have tried books, read articles, or watched videos on how to get off Auto Mode, but all the jargon and technical explanations are still leaving you frustrated.
Maybe you’re someone who has been using Auto mode for years, just because it’s comfortable?
🤔…although at times, you wish you knew a bit more about the controls, so that you could create the shots you really wanted. Instead of letting your camera guess the settings for you.
Perhaps (like a lot of us) you find yourself using Auto Mode to just ‘keep the shot’ instead of fumbling on manual settings and eventually missing the moment?
I don’t know your story.
But I’m guessing you can relate to at least some of what I mentioned above.

Karlo de Leon began photography when he was 25 and turned from amateur to pro in a span of just 1 year.
He has been a published professional travel photographer since 2005 and started conducting his own photography workshops in 2007 teaching advanced photography – focusing on conceptual, low light and travel photography
He also taught at the Academe in 2008, teaching college students basic to advanced photography. He is also one of Photzy’s in-house authors and a member of the content team.

Walk-through exercises are sprinkled throughout the guide. So keep your camera handy and follow along as you read. Treat the assignments as experiments. Allow yourself to observe the effects of your camera whenever you change settings. The more you familiarize yourself with your camera. The better you get.
