  • Set your camera to M for manual exposure.

  • Set your focus mode to manual focus.

  • Set your shutter speed to 1/15 second.

  • Set your aperture to f5.6

  • Set your ISO to 800

  • Best to use a wider angle lens to capture the entire frame.

  • Get your drive mode to single shot.

  • Use your tripod and remote release to prevent camera shake.

  • If tripod is not available use a lens with stabilization and brace yourself against a table, tree, wall, etc.

  • If your photo is too dark then decrease your aperture number or increase your ISO.

  • If your photo is too light then increase your shutter speed or decrease your ISO.

  • Great places to visit our town centers.

  • Note movement of cars, or people in your photo will produce streaks of light.

  • Want to change the color tone of your photo. Experiment with white balance and picture styles.

  • Go old school with black and white or sepia.
