    Your turn: Intro to Camera Settings

    Screen Shot 2014-01-06 at 7.19.07 PM

    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!

    To read Sherrie’s article, and the entire issue of Birder’s Guide to Gear online (and for free!), just click here. Please share any questions you have for Sherrie, and tips you may have on camera settings, in the comment section below.Screen Shot 2013-12-27 at 4.35.45 PM
