Basic Manual Guidelines

My memory is as long as this geranium stock is tall!
So, I thought I would post a quick manual mode guide for 
reference out in the field...
cause I've always got my smart phone.
(It's not so scary, now that I've actually shot
something on the manual mode!
ISO 100, f2.8, 125)
1)  Choose Your ISO (sensitivity of the digital sensor)
*  ISO 100 - bright sunny day
*  ISO 400 - daylit room or overcast day
*  ISO 800 - dimly lit room
*  ISO 1600 - darker scene

2)  Choose Your Aperture (size of the lens opening)
*  f/2.8 to f/5.6 - portraits
*  f/8 to f/16 - landscapes

3)  Choose Your Shutter Speed (how long the shutter is open)
*  1/30 to 1/250 - your subject is not moving
*  1/250 and above - your subject is moving
