This photography tip is about resetting your camera.

I think we have all been there, you change something inadvertently on your camera sometimes even without knowing it! Unless you know a lot about your camera, sometimes this is frustrating because you don't know how to fix it and it may be affecting your photos. 

I see quite a few different cameras at my workshops and sometimes I come across ones where some settings have been changed and people are complaining about how their photos are looking. Sometimes it's an easy fix but others are not. 

One of the best ways to fix problems with your camera (in most cases) is to do a simple reset and restore the settings to factory default. 9 times out of 10 this will fix your camera woes!

You will be able to find the reset menu in your camera settings. Obviously it will differ from camera to camera but it is usually in the general settings not the shooting settings. It will probably reset some of your settings you may have changed like file type (RAW, jpeg etc.) or any focus settings. If you have any custom settings it may reset them also but on Canon cameras it's in another menu to clear them. Resetting your camera shouldn't affect any of your photos you may have on your SD card but as a precaution it would be a good practice to make sure you have downloaded photos first and also go through your menus and make a note of anything you know you have changed.

If you have any issues as always I'm happy to help, just get in touch.


I hope you enjoyed this photography tip. Feel free to ask any questions by sending me a message on social media or by EMAIL.

Till next time, happy shooting.
