Day 8 – Case Studies
Find a couple of different photography situations that you can practice adjusting the exposure triangle. Below are some suggestions and some settings you might use.
• Very rarely will you need to shoot using Shutter Priority
• Aperture priority allows for faster adaptation to light when moving around on a family shoot.
• For a family shoot, shoot on Aperture Priority at around f/11 or f/16. This will help keep things in focus with so many people in the shoot.
• Use exposure compensation to help compensate your exposure if it’s too bright or too dark while using Aperture Priority.
• Night photography is best done using manual mode. The light sensors are not sensitive enough for Aperture Priority to get an accurate reading.
• Use a tripod because chances are the shutter speed will slow down and holding the camera isn’t the best option.
• You might increase your ISO to 200 so you don’t get a too slow of a shutter speed.
