This license is not a sale of the Manual and you do not become the owner of the Manual through your purchase of any product, download and/or use. Manual mode gives you full control over your exposure. If you are finding a lot of your photographs are either underexposed (too dark) or overexposed (too light) then working in fully manual mode will help you to better understand and correct these exposure problems. Press and hold down the exposure compensation button while turning the rotating dial until the aperture is the lowest f number it can go. The more you shoot, the better your timing will become. The aperture is the opening in a lens that lets light into the camera.

To set the aperture on the Nikon D3200, hold down the aperture button on top of the camera and turn the command dial.
