    I have a project for my photography group, i need to take photos with the settings on:
    Aperture: F11
    Shutter: 1/100
    ISO: 800
    White Balance: Shady

    Please suggest things to take photos of with this setting? (eg. bright, dark, moving etc) My camera is a Sony A-300 DSLR with an 18-70mm lens.

    Thanks in advance.

    I suggest whatever's around you that will expose properly at those settings. But seriously, I think you're going to need to be outside either in a shaded area or around dusk, certainly not mid day with that ISO. 1/100 won't capture real fast motion, so most likely something standing still or moving slowly. You can probably get some things indoors as well.

    Don't exceed your ISO up to ISO-200 as much as possible use ISO 100-200 only
    Set your White Balance to Auto (just to be safe)
    Use Aperture Priority so that you don't need to set your Shutter Speed all the time... you only need to set your Aperture from f1.8 max of f16 depends on the situation.

    It's an assignment from his photography group. He doesn't get to choose the settings.

    F/11, 1/100 and ISO800
    This settings is roughly equal to EV 11

    According to Wikipedia, for EV11, you can capture

    Sunsets or skyline after sunset
    Indoor gallaries

    OHHHH!!! this is for your assignment :lmao: well at that settings you can shoot inside the mall or a house you can also use that settings at night but not in a day time outside the building because it will give you over expose unless you set your EV

    You can shoot in sunrise or sunset. As long as the light condition is about the same. The EV11 is just a guideline about how much light you have in that condition. It can be a heavily overcast during the day or a open shaded area in clear sky. Just look at your camera meter and make sure you have a correct exposure.


    Tripod or not, it depends. If you are shooting with focal length set at the wide end (i.e. 18mm), it should be fine with hand held. But at the longer focal length end (i.e. 70mm), I will say use a tripod if you have one unless the Sony in-body shake reduction system can help reducing the camera shake in one or two stops.

    Maybe to learn the relationship between aperture/iso/shutter speed? I have no idea, but that would be my educated guess just from looking at the assignment.

    I think if the assignment is for a manual film camera without light meter around, then it will be a good assignment for people to learn Exposure Value.
