Some examples your instructor will review are the following: Aperture Priority, Shutter Priority, ISO, Fstop/Aperture and Shutter Speed. These will help you take your camera off automatic and prepare you to enter the world of controlled manual settings.
Understanding Your DSLR: Exposure & Metering: Understanding the basics of exposure and metering are the building blocks to becoming a good photographer.
