I don’t know about you, but this screen (at right) can look a little daunting to me, even though I think I have a rudimentary knowledge of ISO, F-stop, and shutter speed. Explaining what those three things are–and how they work together (and against one another)–is what Sherrie Duris has written about in “An Introdution to Camera Settings”, within the current issue of Birder’s Guide to Gear. Understanding this concept is they key to taking consistently great photos with an SLR camera, and as you can see below, Sherrie’s article is accompanied by a series of photographs that show you how changes in camera settings affect the end result. Seeing is believing!
