    slowly..step by step.. i think TS is too overly excited and bit paranoid. Just keep shooting, keep trying keep reading and keep learning.

    If u are keen u will improve. Enjoy the moment. dont think too much and etc. Being able to be there is what it matters most.. have photo is a plus..having good photo is a bonus.

    Making full use does not mean that a user must use all different modes for equal wear and tear like car tires. Use the mode that helps you most to get the shot. Shooting Manual for the sake of it is pointless - and unless you brag about it online by showing off exif data nobody will ever notice which mode was used. But surely many will recognize boring, underexposed or badly composed pictures

    Not paranoid....maybe just getting a little bit too technical...and trying to understand what each part of the camera does....

    It's a basic exposure guideline based on ISO, aperture and shutter speed in different lighting situations. Search here or in Google.

    nice, finally get to see the pic on film box hee... it's got an illustration of 'sunny 16' rule - basically when there's bright sunlight and clear skies the settings are aperture F16, shutter speed roughly equal to 1/ISO (here using ISO 100 film so shutter speed is 1/125). Now got internet so information much easier to find, luckily no need climb mountain to find sifus

    This is a photo of the 2nd edition, the 3rd edition is also in the library, but the exposure concept hasn't changed much in years

    Hope you had fun for your cruise and happy reading!

    And you're right, the story is also important, you can get the most appropriate exposure but if the picture is not interesting then also no use. But exposure can be there to aid you in telling your story, setting the mood etc

    Wow - indoor playgrounds - one of the most challenging shooting situations! Poor lighting coupled with fast moving kids and LOTS of kids!

    Would be interested to know who can get good shots in these situations and what settings they use, I tried high ISO, which slows the shutter speed, so I end up with correct exposure but blurry kids. Quickening the shutter speed eliminates the blurry kids, but also makes the picture look like it was taken in a cave!

    Erm. High ISO, given the same aperture, results in a FASTER shutter speed.

    Same advice for you: learn about your camera metering, stop shooting manual mode if you have no idea what you are doing. Sounds like you increased shutter speed without increasing ISO

    Haha. Yeah. I spotted that too and thought it was odd.

    you need to understand the basic principle of relationship between shutter speed, aperture and ISO,

    read the book which I recommended, don't waste time and efforts try here try there and not getting any results, only make yourself frustrating.

    I can only remember "Brother Blue Sky" and "Mr Green Jeans" from that books. Can't really remember what are they though...
