Shooting Assignment |10 Simple Steps
2. Turn the top dial of your camera on Program Mode (it’s the P)
3. Set your ISO to the lowest number it will go. For a Canon that will be 100, on Nikon that will be 200 (your camera will vary)
4. Take a picture
5. Note the shutter speed your camera chooses when it takes the shot. This will be listed on your LCD screen
6. Stay in the same place and take another picture of the same subject, again note the shutter speed.
7. Move the shutter speed dial one notch, doubling your ISO to 200 (Canon) or 400 (nikon)
8. Take a picture and note the new shutter speed
9. Take another picture at the same settings and note again the shutter speed
10. Double your ISO again and note the shutter speed your camera chooses. Keep doubling the ISO and take a picture each time until you reach the highest number. Say that highest number is ISO 1600, you would stop there. (your camera may go higher than 1600, if so, keep doubling and take a picture until you are at the highest number)
Note: Do not be concerned about how your pictures look. Tip: Listen to how fast or how slow the shutter opens. You will know what that sounds like when you press down on the shutter to take a picture and you hear a click. That is your shutter.
Great job today! Keep you camera out, we are going to do one more lesson tomorrow.
