Master Your Camera Settings

In 7 Days

Take control of your exposure settings, nail focus every time, and start shooting in manual mode to create professional-looking photos in just 1 week with my proven system without unnecessarily complicated things like the ‘exposure triangle.’

Are you struggling to take photos that look the way you envision?

Maybe you spent a lot of money on a new camera and lens, but your photos still don’t turn out the way you want.

You’re stuck in auto or semi-auto modes, feeling like your camera is making all the creative decisions for you. Those beautiful, professional-looking shots seem just out of reach.

You are getting photos that look decently exposed, but they’re not all that much better than you can do with your phone (and sometimes they’re worse!)

The reality is that until you learn to take complete control of your camera in manual mode, your photos will continue to be…just ok.

Have you been watching tutorial after tutorial trying to understand all the fundamentals of photography but it’s just not coming together?

Unfortunately, there’s so much information out there from so many different sources that it can actually make photography MORE DIFFICULT to learn.

There are really only 3 parts to making a photo:

  1. Exposure
  2. Focus
  3. Composition

And each of those parts is easier to understand than you think.

That’s why I’ve spent the last 4 years learning, teaching, and creating a step-by-step system that will get you out of auto mode and all the way to producing professional-quality images in less time than you ever thought possible…

“Manual Mode in 7 Days” is specifically designed for beginners like you, to break free from the limitations of auto modes.

In just 7 days, you’ll learn how to take full control of your camera, making it work for you, not against you.

Master the art of manual settings – from the right exposure to the perfect focus, and discover the secrets of composition to transform your shots from average to extraordinary.

With my guidance, you’ll not only capture the moment but also create a piece of art. Say goodbye to missed opportunities and hello to stunning, wall-worthy photographs.

And you can learn this simple straightforward system in just 7 days.

When I used Auto or even Aperture Priority Mode, I often had the wrong exposure or just didn’t get the result I wanted. Now, I always switch to Manual Mode, and find it better. I know what exposure is, and why it is important. I sometimes even underexpose intentionally to get a specific look.

– Gary Young (Manual Mode in 7 Days Student)

Change How You Take Photos

Imagine picking up your camera and being able to instinctively adjust the settings in a matter of seconds to get the right exposure for the shot you want.

You no longer worry about getting the “right” settings and just focus on your creativity and composing an interesting shot.

In just 7 days, you’ll move past stressing over the technical aspects of photography and start enjoying your camera and having fun with your photography.

When You Shoot In Manual Mode You’ll Be Taking Photos Like These…

Why Use Manual Mode?

Create Great Photos In Any Conditions

Even if you like the photos you’re getting in Auto mode, once you understand the basics of shooting in Manual Mode, you’ll be able to deal with a variety of lighting conditions that normally cause problems in Auto mode.

Unlock Your Creativity

Once you take control of your camera in manual mode, you’ll be able to use your camera settings in a creative way to make interesting and exciting images that you never would have been able to in Auto Mode.

Stop Missing The Moment

Have you ever used Auto mode and realized that you missed the shot after the moment has passed?

By shooting in Manual Mode and having control over your camera, you’ll understand how to set up the camera quickly to nail the shot the first time and avoid missing the moment.

Meet Your Instructor

Hi there, I’m Pete!

I’ve been a professional photographer for years and run a successful portrait business and love shooting landscapes in my spare time. I’ve even had some of my work featured on the cover of national magazines.

I won’t stop until you get the results you want, period.

That’s why I’ve spent the last 4 years learning, teaching, and creating step-by-step classes that teach the secrets of photography.

Where I’ve Been Featured…

What My Students Say…

I avoided manual mode because I thought it was difficult and only for professionals. But by day 3 of this course, I was already taking photos in manual mode and getting the exposure right.

If you were to enroll in a local photography course it would cost you well over $1000, and you would probably just get the same old outdated methods.

Some aspiring photographers spend over $2000 on a new lens and/or camera and their photos never improve.

So I could easily sell this course for $1500 and it would still be a great value.

But my goal is to ensure as many people as possible get the same enjoyment from photography as I do, so it’s a lot less than that.

And there’s more than just the course videos…

Bonus Materials

Most photography courses are just videos…but that is not the way most people learn.

So to ensure you’re out enjoying your photography as quickly as possible, I’ve also included these…
