Wednesday Photography Tips: PERFECT CAMERA SETTING

What is a Perfect Camera Setting?

There is no one perfect camera setting. However, there are a few handy tips that you can use to improve the images.


I cover these guidelines on the #WednesdayPhotographyTips series. 


Perfect Camera Setting: Shutter Speed

Photographers use the shutter speed for creating different effects, such as freezing action or making moving elements blurry. Here are a few guidelines:

1- Use a fast shutter speed to freeze moving subjects.

2- Using slow shutter speed allows you to blur out motions.

3- The minimum shutter speed for handheld shooting depends on the lens focal length. 

For instance, if you shoot with a 200mm telephoto lens, to avoid camera shake, the minimum shutter speed should be 1/200sec. 


4- Typically, shooting slower than 1/30, you need a tripod. 


5- To avoid a moving subject blurry, you need to consider its speed.  

For example, if your model strolls, shutter speed 1/90 will do the job. But if the model is running, you need to use 1/500 or faster to avoid blurry images.


Using a perfect shutter speed allows you to create excellent pictures.

There is No Perfect Camera setting!

There is no perfect camera setting, but we offer many perfect camera classes.

Omnilargess Photography workshops focus on many hidden features in digital cameras and editing software.

Digital Photography Bootcamp is one of our most popular photography courses, and I explain many perfect camera settings in depth in this class.

Slow Shutter Speed

Manual Exposure
By slowing down the shutter speed the moving elements get blurry. In this example, the water is blurry.
