Hi Tyler, big fan of your work. I'm currently looking for an affordable ($100-300) point and shoot digital camera. Any recommendations?
Thanks! I’m a big fan of the Canon s series of p+s’ I had a s95 for quite some time and still use it from time to time. I think the newest version is the 120, so the s110 is on discount for $250ish which I’m sure is perfectly great. Doesn’t hurt to browse the craigslist/kijiji ads either!
Your pictures are very inspiring.
Appreciate you taking a look!
What's the need to learn how to use shutter speed, ISO and aperture? Why not just shoot in raw and edit in Lightroom or photoshop to make the perfect photo?
You can only do so much in post. I’m sure you can get away with shooting in P mode and letting the camera decide all those settings for you, but if you learn them yourself, you’ll have greater creative control over your vision and trying to minimize the amount of work in post is best. Trying to get things as close as you want in camera will give you more time behind the lens and less time in front of a computer screen. If you take the time to learn how these settings work together, you can shoot with any camera someone puts in your hands and generally have more fun making photos
I recently walked across a suspension bridge (Lynn canyon, BC) and there is a waterfall underneath it. The bridge was super shaky and I couldn't get a shake free photo. I have a x100s, what camera setting would you need to get a shake free photo with the right exposure in a situation like that?
To compensate for the shake, you would need a decently high shutter speed to get a sharp photo. The best thing to start with would be to raise your iso followed by using a wider aperture to let the most amount of light in!
