Composition techniques using different focal lengths with the same subject matter ( from wide angle, normal, telephoto ). Variations of over and underexposure of different scenes to create emotion ( high key, low key lighting ).
Creative use of shadows in your composition using the art principles of repetition, contrast, and balance. High Image Quality Settings – RAW plus FINE ( JPEG ) Raw has the highest quality & contains all color information. ISO Film Speed – 100 ASA ( shooting low ISO guarantees highest quality & no noise or grain ) AWB Settings – Use both A & Incandescent Settings Picture Control – Use both Standard & Neutral Settings Focal Lengths – Shoot wide angle ( 24mm ), Normal ( 50mm ), and Telephoto ( 70-85mm ) Exposure setting – M setting, Manual Exposure Exposure Compensation Dial – this must be set to ZERO, it has the plus & minus sign LCD Brightness Settings – Set this between 0 to plus 1 during outdoor night exposure. But it depends on how much light is out there. Brightly lighted buildings downtown require 0. Watch the LCD brightness as this is critical for calculating exposures. You can be off by as much as 1-2 stops.
