    Default Standard shutter speed and aperture size ?

    Hi all,

    are there any standard shutter speed and aperture size to set for photo taking for beginners?

    Any tips to take note on how to learn the basic of photography?

    My friend ask me to take down the the shutter speed and aperture size I use for every photo I take. Will this help?

    Any advise is welcome. Thank you.

    A. No

    B. You friend is both right and wrong. If you do not understand the basic, Shutter speed and Aperture size is just numbers. You will need to understand the surrounding and it's effect on your photographs... etc etc

    I would strongly suggest that you take one of the courses that help beginners to understand photography. Look under the workshops section. I am sure you will benefit greatly and cut short your learning curves.

    Just to be clear. I have no financial interests in any of these courses.

    If you're a beginner, it is extremely difficult, if not impossible to learn the basics of photography via online. As suggested, you could either take up a course or join some of the photo shoot outings listed in the sub-forums. From there, you could ask questions and others will better be able to share with you their knowledge and experiences.

    Either way, consistent committment in time and effort in learning and practicing is needed. Don't hesitate if you're really serious in photography.

    Shuttle speed and aperture size can get obtained from the EXIF info.
    Don't bother taking them down.

    Film users need to take down manually unless you're using a EOS 1v with a data back.

    I find that I learnt alot from reading online articles about photography.

    There are lots of good articles on the internet.
    such as:

    www.kenrockwell.com
    www.nikonians.org
    www.luminous-landscape.com
    ...there are others but i cant remember the addresses

    Besides reading, trying out different shutter speeds and aperatures do help alot in letting me understand how my camera captures the picture. (i didnt do that on film, of course )

    I second that and would also add books to the list. Online materials and books have the big advantage that you can go through them and try out what you learned with your camera at your own pace.

    Hi, newbie here..

    talking bout books..

    I got myself "understanding exposure" by Brayan Peterson..
    a very good book to start off for newbies like us..

    another book I borrowed from library and end up buying in store..
    "the photography handbook" by Sue Hillyard
    this book explained how photography works in the way I can understand clear though..

    both books cost less than S$40 each.. u can find it at rice ball
    do a search in the forum and u'll know where's rice ball.

    I'm not yet own DSLR yet though going soon this few moments..
    so, i find read up books really help a lots and of cos, posting questions here and i'm sure the old birds will definitely help..
