Sunday Shootout

by Kate Franco on August 4, 2012 · 5 comments

Gina + Lila + Nick {my brother!} and I got together last week to practice some newly acquired photo knowledge. I’m not going to say skill…yet. I’m just barely grasping onto this crazy terminology {and technology}. Concepts like: ISO, White Balance, F-Stop, Aperture are, um, totally overwhelming. Nick was super patient and the ladies had a lot of fun! Click any of the images to enlarge.

What are your tips for amazing photos? Please share, I’d love to hear! Click through to see my FAVE shots of the day.

Great stuff! Best time of day to shoot is either right after sunrise or about 1.5 hours before sunset. Middle of the day can be tricky as the light is harshest and can cast shadows on your face. If you have to shoot in midday sun, try to find a patch of shade which can help with evening out the light on your face/outfit. If you’re outside in bright sun, crank your ISO to the lowest it goes (usually 100). I like to shoot “wide open” which allows for the subject in focus and background blurry, so I shoot with a small # aperture (F-stop and aperture are the same thing). Usually 2.8 (this was a totally confusing concept, as it’s counter intuitive). Then, I’m usually just playing around with the shutter speed. There’s also that little light meter inside the viewfinder than can help find your exposure…I didn’t know about that thing until I had my camera for almost a year.
