    Default How you shot portrait in wide apture with bright daylight?

    Hi everyone,
    I just taken some shot toady at bright day light at the f1.8. But shutter speed 8000 is still blink and i can't get correct exposure unless i narrow down my f number but i like to shoot with wide open to get nice bokeh. Any bros had any tips on that kind of situation please kindly share for me. Thanks for your knowledge

    Did you also happen to check your iso setting if its set to anything higher then 100? For a shutter speed to be set at 8000 and its still blinking you must have been trying to shoot the sun and get a nice bokeh! No offense huh just joking. So is the iso at 100 or higher?

    Your pictures speaks for you, not your camera.

    Thanks for you quick answer bros.
    I use one of those ND Tian Ya, but i notice its looks like a bit more brownish and WB is a bit change? Just for me scene.

    Will it be reduce the pic quality too?

    shoot in RAW and adjust WB etc after that to remove the color tinge...
