CAMERA BETTERBEST Manual exposure Image Stabilization dSLR 17-50mm lens External flash 14. EXPOSURE Most important variables Aperture Shutter speed ISO 15. APERTURE Often is the most important variable Significantly impacts depth of field Displayed in f stops 16. APERTURESmallLarge f/16 Less light Slower shutter More DOF f/2.8 More light Faster shutter Less DOF 17. SHUTTER SPEED Choose a slow speed to emphasize movement, or a fast one to freeze the scene 18. ISO Determines the sensitivity (to light) of the sensor High ISO allows for a faster shutter, but can greatly reduce quality 19. DEPTH OF FIELD DOF is the area of the image that is in focus. It is useful for emphasizing and/or isolating subjects. 20. DEPTH OF FIELD Use a large aperture for less depth of field, more background blur 21. DEPTH OF FIELD Use a small aperture for more depth of field, less background blur 22. FOCAL LENGTH 17mm50mm 23. ACCESSORIES External flash Tripod Software (Photoshop/Lightroom/Elements) 24.
