Being ready is imperative to capturing a great moment.
The only way this can happen is if my mind is open to life.
Being open to life means being receptive and responsive without conscious thought. This mean knowing my Camera settings impeccably well.
Life is happening 24/7.
Being attentive to what is happening is all about paying attention to what is happening right in front of me.
My Camera settings are very easy and straight forward:
Shutter Speed 1/250 or 1/500 sec
ISO this depends on the quality of light.
Bright Sunny Days ISO 100 up to 200 - nice and low.
Overcast 400 - 800
Some days, i set my ISO to Auto 100-1600 with a minimum Shutter Speed of 1/250 - this ensures good exposure with action stopping shutter speed.
The image above tells a story in 1/500 of a second. Try not to laugh🤣
Photographing life on the streets as it happens is a thrilling exercise and encounter. This is why I never leave home without my camera.
Thanks for reading.
