live performances in small venues where
the lighting changes continuously, try using Manual Exposure
and Auto ISO Sensitivity Control. Auto ISO Sensitivity Control allows the camera to adjust
ISO sensitivity automatically if optimal exposure
cannot be achieved at the value
currently selected by the user. To use
Auto ISO Sensitivity Control, go to the Photo shooting menu and select
Auto ISO sensitivity control in ISO sensitivity settings.
Highlight On and press Ok. Choose the maximum sensitivity.
Let’s try ISO 12800. This lets the camera
raise ISO sensitivity as high as 12800 if required. Next, adjust
shutter speed and aperture. You’ll probably
want to set shutter speed fast enough
to help avoid motion blur. Here, we shot
in Manual Exposure mode, at a shutter speed
of 1/160 of a second and an aperture of F4. This feature,
which takes advantage of the high ISO sensitivities
offered by digital SLRs, will help you get shots that perfectly capture
your creative intent.
