Today looks like a great day for capturing some fall foliage at Catamount in Williston.
Some things to consider today:
- What kinds of shots do you want to capture? Having a plan helps
- What types of composition are you after? blurred background, portrait orientation….
- What is the light doing? That has a big impact on our success.
Follow these tips when setting ISO
- Set your ISO by pressing the ISO button on the top of your camera. Then use the wheel to choose an ISO setting. Press the ISO button again when you have made your selection.
- If you are in a well-lit situation (outside on a sunny day) choose 100 or 200.
- If you are indoors, or if it is cloudy or darker out, use a slightly higher ISO, like 400 or 800.
- If you can help it, stay away from the highest ISOs (like 3200 and 6400), as they will produce “noise” in your image. (if you look in my image at the top of the dayplan – you can see the noise!
- When in doubt, you can set it to AUTO, but be aware that your camera may select a very high ISO, thus giving you noise and potentially ruining an image – which is what I set my camera to last evening.
- For today’s shoot, I am going to work with ISO set to Auto to start, then play around.
Follow these tips when setting Aperture
- Set your aperture in manual mode is by pressing the “Av” button on the back of your
- camera and rotating the wheel simultaneously.
- What aperture should you use? Use a wide-open aperture (small f #) if you want a shallow depth of field or if you need to let in a lot of light. Use a smaller aperture (larger f #) if you want a larger depth of field or don’t need to let in as much light. A small aperture is good for landscapes!
Follow these tips when setting Shutter Speed
- To set your shutter speed, all you need to do is rotate your wheel when in manual mode.
- If your exposure index is indicating that you are UNDEREXPOSED, decrease your shutter to a SLOWER speed.
- If your exposure index is indicating that you are OVEREXPOSED, increase your shutter to a FASTER speed.
- KEEP IN MIND: Don’t shoot slower than 1/60 without a tripod, and if you are shooting a subject that is moving or may move, expect motion blur.
- If it is too dark (underexposed) and you do not want to lower your shutter speed any lower (do to blur), adjust something else (wider aperture or higher ISO).
