to get a good shot, you need to consider the illumination of the subject.Depending on this parameter you will need to set the ISO (sensitivity) of the camera.In sunny weather, or when you use good lighting is better to omit its value to 100 or 200. In gloomy weather or at dusk should be raised to 400, and in the evening, at night, at a concert in the club - to 800 or higher.The higher the ISO, the more digital noise appears in the images.Besides the high ISO values ​​in bright light will cause the frame will be ruined.It is also important to remember if you use a flash, the sensitivity is also reduced to 100-200.
Sample photos with a value of ISO 100 and 3200.

Now to configure bb, ie,White balance.This setting helps the camera to detect and display the correct color.After all, different types of lighting give a completely different picture.For example, incandescent lamp gives all the colors of yellowness.Setting bb "incandescent" to balance color temperature and make the colors more natural, add more blue and it neutralizes the yellow lighting lamp.Try to take pictures with different settings bb outside in different weather, in a room with different lighting.Compare the results.
Various settings bb.

In different situations, you need to properly take advantage of the diaphragm.In fact it is a hole in the lens.It can be opened and closed by controlling the flow of light.Accordingly, the more you open it, the brighter the picture is obtained, and vice versa.Also missing light diaphragm performs another important function: it allows you to adjust the depth of field (DOF).Open aperture blurs all that is out of focus.Close the aperture on the contrary makes the whole image equally-sharp.
Examples of different depth of field at different aperture.

more important to know how to put the shutter speed.It affects, clear or blurred picture will be whether it is static or dynamic.Fast shutter speed to freeze the frame.The faster an object moves, the shorter should be the delay.
Short and long exposure.

In the evening, very little light reaches the aperture and fast shutter speeds we do not get any results.We need to use slower shutter speeds for better attention to detail.It is important to use a tripod or other solid base for the camera because the camera during the exposure will capture even the slightest motion.On the other hand shooting moving subjects at slow shutter speeds can also give very interesting results.For example, water, taken with fast shutter speeds looks sharply, loudly, clearly visible spray.But if you pull it off well, but with a slow shutter speed, the water in the picture is fluid, smooth, silk-like, the jet will look like silver threads.
