If you love photography and wish to grasp every inch of wisdom required to shoot a good picture? Here's a little catching up to do! We bring to you a series of Photography tutorials on ZenTalk! Starting with the Manual Mode, you won't regret taking down notes

Before you begin, here's a little tip:

If you haven't updated the PixelMaster App yet, here's what you're missing out on:

The Manual Mode icon 'M' could be seen resting right next to the camera shutter icon! You can now access the Manual Mode real quick!

Clicking on the 'M' Manual Mode icon, you should be able to view the highlighted portion which entails the following: Reset, Autofocus, Shutter Speed, ISO, EV and White Balance!

To understand more about the Manual Mode, make sure to read up on Sweetmeringue's post: Zenfone 2 - Manual mode - Demsytified

The article details each element (Autofocus, Shutter Speed, ISO, EV & White Balance) of the Manual Mode! To make it clear, the article is well demonstrated through images!

Note: The Manual Mode does not end with the above listed functions but continues! Read through the below listed points to understand the same!

Click on the highlighted portion!

Having clicked on the same, you should be able to view the following camera manual optimization options! To understand more on how these options work, look through Sweetmeringue's post on: Camera Manual Optimization Tips
This article covers the following Manual optimization options: Saturation, Contrast, Sharpness, Noise Reduction, Detail Enhancement & Backlight!


Now that you've grasped in the the basics of the Manual mode, I'd like to introduce you to another two crucial elements under the Manual Mode. These include:


1. Guideline
2. Histogram


1. Guideline

Guidelines, is a rather interesting concept! If you wish for a good frame, the Guideline option should be your best help! Let's find out how!

The highlighted points of intersection is what should be used to place your subject or object! You could place your subject at either of the points of intersections!

To understand this better, here's a small demo:

If you look closely, I've use the point of intersection to position my subject (Minion toy)! This should help with good compositions



2. Histogram

Have you come across this and never been sure what to do with it? An important element, here's what is stands for:

Having switched on the Histogram option, you'll see a small little histogram figure on your screen when clicking a picture.

Histograms sweking to the left would mean that your photo is underexposed!

Whereas histograms skewing to the right would mean that your photo is overexposed.

A Balanced Histogram would look like this!
