Auto ISO: Two Minute Tips with David Bergman

Transcript

00:02
hey I’m auto photographer David Bergman and
00:05
this is two minute tips for adoramatv
00:14
today I’ve got a tip on how to make
00:17
aperture priority mode more useful you
00:19
probably know that I’m a big proponent
00:21
of shooting in full manual exposure mode
00:23
it gives you total control over your
00:25
images and doesn’t leave anything to
00:27
chance in the camera however there are
00:30
times when you might want the cameras
00:32
helps just a little bit for example in a
00:34
fast-moving situation where you’re going
00:36
in and out of extremely different
00:37
lighting you could ask the camera to
00:39
make some quick exposure decisions for
00:41
you
00:42
in that case aperture priority is
00:44
usually the way to go if you represent
00:46
it as an A or a V under camera
00:48
controlling your aperture allows you to
00:50
decide how wide or narrow you want your
00:52
depth of field to be but anytime you
00:54
give your camera control of your
00:56
exposure there are consequences let’s
00:58
say you’re shooting outdoors you have
01:00
your ISO low to keep image quality high
01:02
the camera will pick a pretty fast
01:04
shutter speed because there’s plenty of
01:06
light but once you step inside unless
01:08
you remember to manually adjust your ISO
01:10
your shutter speed could be too slow and
01:13
you’ll have blurry photos nobody wants
01:15
that the answer for this problem is a
01:17
feature called auto ISO most modern
01:20
cameras have it the beauty of auto ISO
01:22
is that you can set the maximum ISO and
01:25
minimum shutter speed the camera is
01:27
allowed to use so maybe you set your max
01:29
ISO and 8000 or whatever you think the
01:31
highest usable amount is for your
01:33
particular camera and your minimum
01:35
shutter speed at let’s say 250th of a
01:37
second now when you go inside on
01:39
aperture priority the camera will still
01:41
lower your shutter speed for the darker
01:43
situation first but only until it gets
01:46
to that set 250th of a second if it
01:48
still needs more light it’ll start to
01:50
raise your ISO at that point it’s the
01:52
best of both worlds at the end of the
01:54
day I still recommend shooting on manual
01:56
but if you don’t want to think and have
01:58
to move fast you can use aperture
02:00
priority to let your camera help you out
02:02
a little bit but remember to use auto
02:04
ISO so your camera doesn’t get totally
02:06
out of control
