1. An image capturing apparatus comprising:
an image capturing device configured to capture an image;
a control circuit configured to decide whether or not to perform an automatic image capturing by the image capturing device, using parameters obtained in a learning operation in which a learning circuit learns conditions of images that a user likes based on supervised data;
wherein the control circuit sets a score used by the learning circuit in the learning operation, to a first image captured by the image capturing device based on an instruction of a user and a plurality of second images continuously captured by the image capturing device before and/or after the image capturing of the first image, and registers the first and second images and the scores as the supervised data, and
wherein the scores set to the plurality of second images are lower than the score set to the first image.
