Merry Christmas! I hope you had an amazing time with family and friends over the holidays.
I just want to share a few ideas for great family photos, and hopefully help you know how to avoid simple mistakes that I made over Christmas!
Let’s look at this picture. On my camera’s small LCD screen this picture looked just fine, but what it didn’t reveal is that I had my ISO at 1600. Zoomed in the noise on this photo makes it virtually unusable. Generally you should keep your ISO at 100. This keeps the noise down.
Sometimes in lowlight situations you will need to pull up your ISO, but when I’m using my beginner camera I don’t try to pull it up or even try to get good pictures in lowlight because my aperture won’t go down past 4.5. With higher quality Cameras lowlight photos can look amazing!
I hope this tip on watching where you put your ISO helps out! And once again Merry Christmas.
