The first step to starting to use your camera like a pro is to stop using the automatic mode. I recommend you learn Av mode (Nikon users, A mode) first.
Av = Aperture Priority
If you need a refresher on aperture, read the aperture post here. Aperture priority means you choose the aperture value you want and the camera will automatically adjust the shutter speed.
I was about to write a detailed post on learning Av mode and then I found an awesome post Mari at Inspired by Familia. No need to reinvent the wheel! Click the photo below to learn the details of aperture priority mode.
I learned to use my camera and not be so overwhelmed in Av mode, so I strongly recommend you use the tips Mari has to give!
