Thread: Settings for indoor school play

    Default Settings for indoor school play

    High, can anyone give me a guide on what settings I should use for a school play. I making the assumption that I will be too far away for the flash to be affective.
    I have a D80 with 135mm Lens. Should increasing the ISO be sufficient?

    Any tips appreciated

    Default Re: Settings for indoor school play

    Maybe "P" (for "Professional"... hahah...) mode, with +0.7EV. If you're using the in-built flash, I think really not enough. But if you're using an mounted flash, can try. Perhaps those with a flash diffuser affixed would give better results. ISO, maybe about 400, or max 800 should do the trick.

    If you wanna try "M" (for "MY"... hahahah..) mode, maybe can try MAX Aperture, with a Shutter time of between 5s - 1/4s. ISO the same.

    Else, just leave ISO in Auto...

    The DIFFERENCE is not in the "Cue", it is in the SKILLS...
