- Automatic settings do not always give you the best exposure.
- Be aware of your light sources. Light behind the subject gives a dramatic silhouette effect while light to the side often gives long dramatic shadows.
- Use a minimum ISO of 200 for daylight shots and minimum 800 for evening or dimly light interior shots. Note: The higher the ISO, the more “grainy” the photo.
- The slower the shutter speed (1/60 of a second), the more exposed the shot or the less light necessary. The faster the shutter speed (1/500), the less exposed the shot and the more light needed.
