Four Settings Every Photographer Should Know on Their Camera

When it comes to our cameras most of us put a lot of time into researching which camera to purchase. We review websites like Fstoppers, read user reviews on B&H and Amazon. All to make sure the camera we end up with has the feature we want and the best image quality we can afford. What we forget, however, is that image quality in real life usage can be quite subjective.

Whether its the subject matter of your images, editing skill level, or just your own personal taste. What you deem as acceptable may be very different from another user. 

Coming from the talented landscape photographer and YouTuber Nigel Danson, this video covers four camera settings every photographer should know and understand about their own camera. Danson walks you through just how he determines what setting limits can produce an acceptable image and how you can do the same for your camera and lenses. Having this knowledge is important because it ensures that when short on time or in quick fluid situations you get more usable shots. This also comes in handy when working with a client who may need or prefer images that are of a higher quality then what you yourself may find acceptable. This can often be because of how the final image is being used.
