Have been exploring my 550D, and wish to check with you guys on the picture style and the aperture.
Notice that some users are using this settings to achieve different effects.. I have been testing however it doesn't seems right.
Read the manual, it explains how to set the picture style and the parameters such as saturation,contrast,sharpness,color tone.
Tried to fiddle around the parameters under Pic style landscape/portrait but unable to find the optimum settings.. someone able to enlighten me?
For eg: under landscape, i tried to increase the contrast and saturation so the image looks more crisp and the colour is bolder.
For the aperture, we know that we can create the blur-ness or bokeh depending on one's creativity/skills/judgement on the distance to make the picture looks good.
Wonder if there is a general guideline for us to follow in terms of the distance of the subject?
How you guys determine what aperture to use exactly for the shots? Example, 3.5f for subject under low light but the subject may be some distance like eg: 1m ? will this be the best f-stops? How to determine?
Thanks in advanced!!
