I Need Color
March 28, 2010
I’ve noticed that there is something missing from the photos I took recenly, and I realized, yeah, I need colors, luckily there are some hiding in my Lightroom library.
This photo was taken using my Canon Rebel XS 10.1MP Digital SLR Camera with EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS Lens. I use an aperture of F/8.0 for a deep Depth of Field using the Rebel XS’s Aperture Priority program mode. Stopping down to F/8 or F/10 allows background objects from afar to be in focus. If i’m shooting landscapes and none moving objects like my photo above, I set my camera to Aperture Priority, this will allow me to choose which aperture is appropriate for the scene and the camera automatically selects the Shutter speed to match the Aperture value.
And lastly, I always set my ISO to the minimum which is 100 on the Rebel XS to minimize noise. Please avoid or never use AUTO ISO.
Exposure : 1/60
Focal Length : 32mm
