    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?

    Can others edit my Photos:

    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?

    &lt;---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.
