Bug's Question: Favorite camera settings and why
I use the Canon Rebel XTi which I got for my birthday in August of 2007. And it still does all those things I want it to do (except the flash seems to be disinclined to pop up for me. No matter, I don't use it, often).
I almost always leave it set at the Tv mode (time value), adjusting the Exposure and ISO as needed. See the following examples:
The water was running at the same speed for both photos, but setting the exposure time longer and at a higher ISO allows you to see the individual bubbles as the spill out of the bowl. FYI: the higher the ISO the more light is let in.
The time value mode is the preferred setting for action shots.
Next month our other sister and I will be attending a class to learn out to make better use out of our cameras. Can't wait to see how that will change the way I take photos.
