So, a few weeks ago I got a new camera. I settled on a Canon SD500. It’s a point and shoot but it has a significant zoom and all sorts of cool settings, including Manual. I’ve heard it said so many times “Never shoot in Auto” , “Don’t use your flash, like never, ever, ever” etc. but I honestly need to know some tips and tricks that some of you more experienced photographers (moms, bloggers with great photo taking skills) use.
I do have a few questions/statements that I need help with:
Is it true that you should never take photos at night?
Even with my ISO at my highest, it’s not bright enough without using my flash.
Pictures of my kids in motion (even just regular moving around while taking pictures) keep coming out blurry.
Has anyone who owns a decent POINT AND SHOOT camera ever read Kristen Duke’s “Say NO to Auto” and does it apply to Point and Shoot cameras?
If anyone can help me, please let me know! Feel free to leave links to some of your favorite tutorials, etc in the comments.
