THE COMPACT COM­PRO­MISE

Scuba Diver Ocean Planet - - Compact User -

Now that you’ve cho­sen your sub­jects care­fully, and de­cided what lens at­tach­ment and light­ing works best for your cam­era, you’ll need to con­cen­trate on get­ting the ex­po­sure right. A cor­rectly ex­posed im­age is an ed­u­cated com­pro­mise be­tween aper­ture, shut­ter speed, and ISO; whether you shoot us­ing a semi-au­to­matic mode or pre­fer go­ing man­ual, make sure you’re com­fort­able with the me­chan­ics be­hind proper ex­po­sure (see “Compact User” on shoot­ing in Man­ual mode). Un­der­stand the inherent tech­ni­cal lim­i­ta­tions of the sen­sor and the lens, you will be able to squeeze the max­i­mum per­for­mance out of your hum­ble compact cam­era. You may be sur­prised at what kind of wide-an­gle im­ages it can pro­duce. SDOP
