Pay attention to your settings

I try to include the camera settings in my image captions because I think you learn a lot from them (I know I do). Always examine the camera settings on your own shots and try to examine them on other people’s. If you are using Google Chrome as your browser, an amazing browser extension that you can install is called “Fittr Flickr“.  This will allow you to examine all the camera settings people use on Flickr. 

The next time you are photographing something, think to yourself: ” why am I (or the camera) using these settings, what will they do for me?”  Even low-end cameras will show you the settings used.
