Matching shooting features to photo-shooting
After you are familiar with your camera,
let's shoot an image in various situations
with some settings changed. This section
describes some representative shooting
Q: To shoot a portrait with its
background blurred
, Shooting with aperture priority
mode (page 37)
When you want to enhance the person with
the background blurred, adjust the aperture
manually. The more the aperture is opened
(the aperture value becomes smaller), the
narrower the focus is. The background is
blurred accordingly.
Q: To shoot a portrait against
, Selecting a flash mode (page 50)
Shooting a human subject in a bright place
can create dim facial shadows. This occurs
when the background is brighter than the
person. In such cases, set the flash to
(Forced flash). You can shoot both the
person and the background clearly.
• You can use the flash within the reach of the
flash light.
Q: To shoot a night scene
, Shooting with shutter speed
priority mode (page 36)
Using the flash in the auto adjustment mode
restricts the shutter speed and the flash light
does not reach distant subjects. The image,
therefore, is not captured clearly. In such
cases, slow the shutter speed manually, set
the flash to
(No flash), and reduce the
light using the EV adjustment. You can then
shoot a clear night scene.
Q: To shoot without flash
, Selecting the ISO sensitivity
(page 45)
When you cannot use the flash or set the
shutter speed slower, increase the ISO
rating. The higher rated ISO setting helps
maximize the effect of the surrounding light
to shoot.
We recommend that you set the ISO
sensitivity according to the shutter speed so
that the vibration warning indicator
(page 120) is not displayed.
