  • Shutter Speed : In photography, shutter speed or exposure time is the length of time a camera's shutter is open when taking a photograph. The amount of light that reaches the image sensor is proportional to the exposure time.

  • ISO : When you change your ISO setting, you're adjusting your camera's sensitivity to light. With increased sensitivity, your camera sensor can capture images in low-light environments without having to use a flash. But higher sensitivity comes at an expense – it adds grain or “noise” to the pictures.

  • White Balance(WB) : Our eyes are very good at judging what is white under different light sources, but digital cameras often have great difficulty with auto white balance. Making adjustments of WB manually can help you avoid color casts, thereby improving your photos under a wider range of lighting conditions. Lower numbers are cooler (blues), higher numbers are warmer (yellows). 

  • Manual Focus : If you moved the slider all the way to the left, which allowed you to take the close-up photography. It's possible to arbitrarily set the focus to a given value, enabling you to focus on the foreground or the background, or anywhere in between.
