I'm tired of taking disappointing and crap pictures with the automatic setting on my camera. I've got a decent Canon DSLR but honestly lack the brain cells to remember how to properly match up ISO/shutter speed/aperture for various situations to get the most out of it, always blow it.Is there a good flashcard-type chart that you would recommend that I could save?
use the one you have on you
Set iso to 100The lower the fstop number the more blurred the bg-you choose how blurred you want itIso and fstop not set so just use the exposure meter in your viewfinder to set shutter speed so have correct exposure. If shutter 1/200 or lower ie 1/100 you need to start increasing iso to your shutter is at least 1/200 It’s that simple.
>>4045859quit being a fag and just go shoot. you learn things by doing them and practicing
>>4045859Shoot in aperture mode for a couple of weeks looking for compositions of vsrying depths, then shoot in shutter speed mode for a couple of weeks looking for subjects moving at different speeds.After doing this you'll have a better idea of how aperture and shutter speed work. Leave ISO to auto unless you have a good reason to set it manually (like setting low to improve DR for landscapes or whatever).
>>4046335Also this>>4046334It is about practice. Literally just practice from your office chair if nothing else. Take pictures of random shit around your house.[EXIF data available.

I honestly never understood how it is hard for people to not understand manual settings. I don't I've ever used any other settings on the 3 cameras I have ever used that wasn't M or CM1, or 2 if I have specific situations that needs those certain modes.Learn to shoot, if you got a bad photo - tough luck, deal with it and shoot again. Learn from your mistakes until you can shoot properly with your ISO, F-stop, speed, WB, etc... It really isn't that hard, and if you think it is... stop shooting and go do something else because you're too retarded to do basic logic on a computer with glass on the front of it.
>>4045859aperture = wide openshutter speed = as fast as you can go, minimum 160then adjust iso for exposureI always shoot full manual and its ez
>>4046359this isn't even a joke this is genuinely how i shooti do adjust the aperture sometimes if I want a sharper image or i want more in focus but normally i shoot wide open, most of my lenses are f2.8 max so wide open is still fairly sharp and the dof isn't too smalli like fast shutter speeds because i normally shoot handheld and like to freeze the moment as much as possible and i hate blur from camera shakei sometimes take long exposures too but that's a different story
>>4046343They never try to learn the exposure triangle in the first place and the basic algebraic propositions escape them. I think it was easier in the days of film when the iso was fixed, the shutter speed was essentially fixed at or above 1/60 for handheld shooting, and your only real control was the aperture. Unless you're forced to think about what a meter reading is and think in stops to get what you want, you don't learn it.
>>4045859This book really helped me when I was a beginner getting into manual mode and could not remember everything properly. Of course you can technically find everything on the internet but reading it from beginning to end in an organized book makes a difference. Since this is the very basics of photo you'd rather be sure that you understand it completely.
>>4046801Apparently I've been banned from uploading pics but the book it Understanding Exposure by Bryan Peterson. I choosed this one cause it was recommended everywhere.
>>4045859>I've got a decent Canon DSLR but honestly lack the brain cells to remember how to properly match up ISO/shutter speed/aperture for various situations to get the most out of it, always blow it.try aperture priority then shutter priority and see how the camera automatically picks out the rest of the image. then try manual mode yourself and tweak as you likemost importantly go practice and practice in different lighting conditions. it's a hobby, and you'll only get better if you practice
>>4046804You're probably using opera or something with auto vpn.
>>4045859>Is there a good flashcard-type chart that you would recommend that I could save?compose your fucking photo before you take itthat is the first lessonUntil you know what key, what tone, and what subject/negative space you want, you will always take shitty pictures. Here's a good heuristic:>acquire a 50mm prime lens for FF or a 35mm prime for APS-C>set ISO at 400 or below>shoot RAWNow>figure out what your subject is>figure out what you'd like your depth of field to be>figure out if your subject is moving>figure out what kind of contrast and key you wantThen>set metering mode based on desired key>set aperture for the DOF you want>set shutterspeed based on light meter's recommendation>frame>shoot>look>repeatgoing out and shooting 1000 photos while paying attention and actually thinking about the shot, then sorting through them and editing them in lightroom will teach you exponentially more than reading a book or memorizing diagrams ever will
