This week we worked on:
Focus – raise ISO for faster shutter speed for sharper focus.
If use image stabiliser/vibration reduction, turn off when using tripod. Or camera will compensate for something that’s not happening.
Look at how camera focuses, and where camera focuses
AF-S – (Single – locks focus on one object. Use this to focus then recompose)
AF-A Auto selected by camera
AF-C (continuous – camera follows object – eg refocuses on a person or animal coming towards you.)
Where the camera focuses. ie focusing point.
Can also use single point setting (next to AFS) and move little red sq around w ok menu button to change the focus point
Choose aperture according to
- depth of field , small f no for shallow
- Movement / shutter speed. Small f no for fast shutter speeds
- If you want to freeze the motion and shutter speed is slow – raise the ISO.
On manual, wheel changes shutter speed. Wheel w +/- button changes aperture
Use light metre through view finder.- : -….0….+ – get line under 0 using shutter speed wheel. Then perfect exposure.
Take pic – see if want brighter or darker pic. Change one of three settings depending on what are achieve – f no, shutter speed or ISO
