Over the Crimbo period I was given a 10D to get me started in the camera world...... and I've read a few tutorials(Including the one on here) but I have to be frank. I'm lost? it all looks like vodoo magic!
Don't get me wrong I understand that altering the apeture setting will help me aquire a depth of field, that ISO settings will allow me to alter the light exporsure and noise, and that shutter speed will also affect light that seeps in which will allow moving objects to blur and such.
The issue I have is knowing how to get the right settings for the enviroment, I know I could keep doing test shots and play around with the settings that way but is there not a faster way a rule of thumb to use to gauge the settings required?
I'm looking to take landscape and enviormental shots which could range from a shot of a castle to a light trail of cars on the motorway to a fly on a flower. I just don't want the photo opt to pass beacuse I'm fiddling around with the camera setting.
Any advice that could be given would be greatly apprecitated, also tips from 10Der's would be brilliant as well however I know its a old DSLR so I don't know if that will happen :)
Please help I would love to get into this and just don't want fall at the firt hurdle out of frustration that I can't acheive the shot I'm after.
