What's a good setting for outdoor pictures with very bright sunlight behind the photographer?
depends largely on the film you're using. What's the ISO?
Well there is the sunny f/16 rule. With ISO 100 film, 1/125 shutter speed f/16.
My camera goes only up to f8. What shutter speed should I set it to? ISO 100
I forget. Isn't that supposed to be 1/250 at F8 if it's 1/125 at F16?
<---would usually go for the faster shutter speed and shallow depth of field anyway.
No, f/11 would be 1/250. f/8 would be 1/500.
I actually played around some settings and compared the results. You can find these pictures at http://www.geocities.com/whatsafrog2do/test.html
There are 4 settings of the shutter speed but all are F8.
I guess it's easier to just set the camera to Aperture priority of F8 and let the camera automatically set the shutter speed. Might show better results.
