Shooting Digital

  1. 1. Shooting Digital
  2. 2. SOP-Standard Operating Procedure Formating memory cards ISO WB-White balance
  3. 3. FormatUse the camera to format the memory card, not your computer
  4. 4. ISO- Sensitivity of sensor/film This tells the camera how sensitive the sensor should be to light. This setting allows you get decent pictures under any lighting situations.
  5. 5. Higher ISO’s (800-1600) Set high for darkly lit scenes Higher ISO’s usually produce more noise, which degrades the image quality.
  6. 6. Lower ISO’s (100-400) Set lower for brightly lit or outdoor scenes
  7. 7. WB-White balanceAWB-Auto white balance works for most situations.Use the settings for specific lighting situations, if your images start to look to too red, blue, or yellow.
  8. 8. D-SLR Shooting modes Tv- Shutter Priority  P- Program Av- Aperture Priority  M- Manual
  9. 9. Tv-Shutter Priority Set the shutter speed and the camera automatically chooses the f-stop for proper exposure.
  10. 10. What shutter speed was used here?
  11. 11. Image Stabilization Image stabilizers help you shoot at slow shutter speeds, but you still may need to stabilize yourself, use a monopod, tripod, or lean against something.
  12. 12. Av- Aperture Priority Set your f-stop and the camera sets the shutter speed for proper exposure F-stop controls depth of field Pay attention to the shutter speed too slow=blurry pictures
  13. 13. Programo This is an automatic setting on a DSLR. This means it will give you choices that are all “good” exposures, but depth of field and the ability to freeze your action depends on what your choice you make.
  14. 14. In program mode, be aware of your shutter speed/f-stopcombination. When you are shooting action, always choose thecombination with the shutter speed at 1/250 second or faster.Otherwise, your action will blur like in this example.
  15. 15. Manual Use manual only if you know how to read the light meter and you don’t mind changing your settings for every shot
  16. 16. In manual mode, you control the shutter speed/f-stop combinationbased on what the light meter is tells you.
  17. 17. Manual is a challenging setting to use, but it might be the onlyway to get a good exposure in difficult lighting situations.
