You know all about the shutter speed ISO aperture and other manual settings but how do you take those awesome shots you’ve always seen professional photographers take well this is where this comes in what’s up guys this is a page from b-bomb comm and today I’m going to show you some really handy DSLR tips and tricks that beginners will really find useful before we get started make sure to hit the bell icon to get notifications for all our future videos but that being said let’s get started we are using the Canon 70d with the kit lens for most of the shots in this video but the method should be similar even if you are using another camera or another kit lens if you capture a lot of nighttime photos or low-light photos and you see a lot of noise well the problem is the high ISO let me show you as you can see I’m trying to capture a shot in a very dark scenario let me just bump the ISO to max because only then I’m getting a bright image well the photo is definitely bright but there’s a lot of noise
. so let’s just fix the is at the 400 because that seems pretty optimum now slowing the shutter speed to 0.4 seconds while keeping the aperture at F 3.5 the captured photo with these settings is decently lit and it’s pretty nice but let’s brighten up the shot a little more so now I’m slowing down the shutter speed to 30 seconds which is the max in our camera with the shot just brightened up a bit too much because the camera is capturing too much light from a direct light source now I’m taking a shot with the same 30 second shutter speed while setting the aperture to f-22 now this is the perfect shot in my opinion at least in this scenario do note that you need to make sure that the camera stays still when you set a slower shutter speed also you might have to play with these settings depending on the light well it’s all about hitting that sweet spot here are some more photos that I took in low light there are times when you want to take a shot of a moving object and I’ll tell you how to take it perfectly.
First let’s take a shot of the moving object and that is me on auto you can see that it freezes the object but when you zoom in it’s blurred well let’s move on to the manual mode shall we in manual mode we are in broad daylight so the shutter speed has to be very fast at 1 by 1000 seconds well you can set the ISO and aperture depending on the light now when you capture a photo you can see that when you zoom in the object is sharp no more bloody moving shots light rail shots look very very cool and well you can easily capture them by playing with the shutter speed and aperture in your camera for instance here I’m increasing the shutter speed to 2 seconds while not really changing the aperture or the ISO which are at F 3.
5 and 100 respectively well here’s the shot which does not look that great right well you can define things I’m lowering the poacher to f-22 and also increasing the shutter speed to 10 seconds for a better light rail effect here is the photo and as you can see the light rail does look good but you can get an even better shot I’m slowing down the shutter speed to our cameras max at 30 seconds while keeping the aperture and the ISO same as you can see with slower shutter speed the light rail looks amazing this is indeed my favorite photo of the rock if you’ve seen our video on the kit lens versus the prime lens you know that the kit lens aka the room lens isn’t very great when it comes to bouquet shots however let me tell you you can take better portrait from the kit lens first let me take a portrait in Auto when we captured an auto the camera tends to use flashy things which really makes the image artificial with unnatural light now switching to manual have set the shutter speed to one by hundred and here’s a photo with the lower f-stop of f29 as you can see lower the aperture then less of the bokeh effect here’s a photo with a higher f-stop of f5 and as you can see the effect is definitely better here’s another photo with the approaches set to max of F 3.
5 so yes if you want to take better portraits from a kit lens you need to set a higher aperture landscape photos are something that most of us love to capture however at times we don’t get an all sharp photo which is a shape for instance I’m capturing a photo at an F 3.
5 and I shot a speed of 1 by 50 with the minimum aya so that’s possible so you can see in the photo that it’s focused on an area in the water and it’s not all around sharp so let’s set the f-stop aka the aperture so let’s set the f-stop aka the aperture to minimum possible with the shutter speed set to once again you can see that this results in a much all across sharper photo there are some more landscape photos that we have taken why do you need filters to make your photos more visually attractive when you have vine palace to play with let me show you how a single frame looks like with different white balance options here’s a photo at Auto where the camera decides the white balance automatically when the image looks natural it seems a bit dull when you can make the shot more appealing there’s the daylight white balance option that does not really make a difference because well it’s daylight the shade option brings a yellowish tint and here’s a photo with the cloudy option now here’s one with the tungsten option which adds cooler colors to the shot he is my favorite the white fluorescent white balance option which brings a light warmer tone to the image that does look more appealing to the eye.
In fact I use this white balance option all the time you can also set a custom color temperature to see what suits you best you could play with the option till you find the perfect setting like I think 4000 is perfect for the shot well it all boils down to you also do note that at times the camera at Auto might suggest a wrong white balance and that’s what different white balance options can come in handy if your camera’s displays too small for you the good news is you can use your Android smartphone as a low-cost yet very handy external monitor for your camera Canon offers its very own iOS remote app so that you can use their Android smartphone as a monitor the EOS remote app connects to the camera Y of Wi-Fi so you have to set up Wi-Fi first in your camera once done you will be able to remotely control the camera through your phone I just focus exposure values and do a lot more.
Camera app works well the connection via Wi-Fi can be laggy thanks if you’d like a more stable connection you can use the DSLR controller a paid app that lets you connect your phone to a DSLR when a Wi-Fi or USB cable the app only works with Canon EOS cameras and with the you get a remote live view and you can even control most common settings but also being able to capture focus and control the room that’s not all you can even preview an image or video import files from a camera and do a lot more apart from these DSLR tips I’ll suggest you to make sure you focus properly while capturing a photo or even shooting a video you can set the focus Y of t.he next one…
