With the seasons changing and preparing for the holidays, why not brush up on your photography knowledge? Everyone gets mixed up in the holiday hustle and bustle, but some things we need to remember when out shooting.
Things you do not want to forget:
- What ISO setting do I use? – This is always important, especially during family gatherings. Mostlikely you will be in a setting with low lighting so you will want your ISO to be at a higher setting, at least 400 or higher. The ISO is light sensitive so have a higher number to ensure your pictures turn out and are just a bunch of shadows.
- Have different lenses handy – Caring lenses around may be a hassle, but the limits are numerous when you can change out your lens to create a new picture. Think of how funny it would be to have that family shot with a “fisheye” lens?
- What white balance will you use? – Depending on the mood of the setting you are in, using different white balances can create fun effects that add to the quality of your images. If you’re in more of a low lit condition that seems “warm”, to balance it out, use a cooler setting that has more blue in it. You can change your automatic settings, or use one of the presets within your camera. Obviously the best way to figure out which to use is by just playing around!
Now take this quiz just to boggle your brain and see what you remember from your beginning days.
