What's the best setting on a DSLR for taking pictures of birds?
I have a new DSLR and want to pratice taking some nice shots of the fids. What's the best setting for daytime shoot and low light night time? Here's my dslr - Nikon D3200 Digital SLR Camera with 18-55mm VR Lens Kit - Black (24.2MP) 3 inch LCD
I just use NO flash and a high shutter speed. Makes the photos a lot more natural and flash washes colors out. Don't use flash unless you absolutely have to. As long as you have a lot of natural light or bright enough lights indoors then you won't need flash.
Play with the aperture on your lens.. What's the maximum aperture on your kit lens? Dslrs are really cool once you start playing with and learning how to use it. I'm no expert tho lol. I just have some lenses and a Nikon d7000 that I love!
The maximum aperture on the lens is F3.5 to F22. I have been experimenting with the aperture, iso, shutter speed, and the flash. It's great fun so far trying to figure out the perfect combination to get a nice picture. My apartment is very low light so it has been a challenge for me to get that nice setting to use with the flash. I think i'm getting there slowly .
I just looked up your Nikon d7000 camera, it's very nice
