The Basic Camera Settings
Every camera has camera settings. Depending on the type of camera and type of lens determines how many camera options you have! I currently use my Nikon D3300 for my photography business. I always shoot in Manual Mode because this allows me to utilize my settings.
Important Camera Settings are:
These are 4 important settings that you need to consider and keep in mind.
I’m going to make this very simple! I don’t like blog post that drags just to get a simple explanation out! So check this out:
Shutter Speed, what is it? It is the length of time your sensor is opened. Think of it like your eyes blinking. The slower you blink the more light you allow in. The faster you blink the less light you allow in.
Aperture? Aperture determines how much of the background is blurred out. If you have a low Aperture your subject will be in focused and your background will have a lot of blur. If it’s higher the whole image will be in focus, including the subject and the background. Note: the higher your Aperture the less light your allowing into your lens and sensor.
ISO Setting: Large ISO the more grain, Lower ISO the less grain. Please whatever you do, DO NOT USE A LARGE ISO. Unless, your shooting at maybe a concert or at night. I made the mistake of shooting all of my sessions is 1600-3200 ISO and my images came out very grainy and it takes forever to edit.
Exposure: Exposure determines how bright your image is. I’ve learned that when I have my exposure up just a little it allows me to bring back important details vs having my image underexposed it’s harder to get those details back. Most people prefer not to mess with the exposure. However I do, I mess with the exposure and the flash exposure also. (It’s up to you as the photographer)
