Semi-new guy here trying to figure out how many pictures you guys will take of a certain subject trying all different types of aperture/shutter speed/iso settings to get a decent picture? Can alot of people just go out and know exactly what to put their settings on and just take one picture? For example, would you go to the zoo and take 15 pictures of the same tiger while changing the settings each time and hope one of the pictures comes out awesome? While i am really starting to understand the shutter speeds/iso/aperture, i find it hard to believe i'll ever look at a subject and know exactly off the top of my head the exact numbers to put each setting. I've seen a bunch of great pictures on these forums where people will list the settings they used. How many actual pictures do you think the person took though before they got that one great picture and how many times do you think they changed the settings in the manual mode to get there? Thanks in advance, Dan Also, how often do you guys use the point and shoot? If you were to go out taking pictures of a bird at the birdfeeder, would you set it for automatic point and shoot or would you adjust settings in manual mode?
