I am fortunate to live within very easy reach of a point-to-point course so occasionally take a small group from our local camera club to learn/practice a few photography principles.

You will see that we start with very basic stuff such as viewpoint and backgrounds - obviously encompassing the matter of shutter speeds and apertures as well as exposure compensation to cater for shooting with both 'normal' and sky backgrounds.

Hopefully having banked a few shots we then try some slightly more interesting stuff - moving to slower shutters for panning with the subject.

We find that 1/100s will show some movement, and that anything slower than 1/10s takes somewhat more skill / patience / luck.


Exif for V1 shows that despite a very flat day, ISO 800 was not needed at the time as the shutter speed resultant from the ISO/Aperture/EC combination was considerably fater than required - of course with newer/better cameras it doesn't actually matter as i doubt the human eye will really see the quality differential.
