Photography Tips From The Pros: Set to f/8

As apertures go, f/8 is a great option. It’s often around the optimum aperture for a lens, which means that it’s sufficiently stopped down to avoid the softness that usually comes when shooting wide open, there’s reasonable depth of field and diffraction isn’t a major issue.

If you carry your camera on your shoulder with a standard zoom lens mounted, the lens hood on, the lens cap removed and the exposure mode set to program you’re pretty much ready for action at a moment’s notice.

Just make sure that the sensitivity is set to a value that allows normal hand-holding shutter speeds, or set it to automatic.

There’s no substitute for being there and having your camera prepared.
