Been really great, thanks for asking! I’m staying here for about 2 months, then I’ll be heading back to NY!
You guys are too awesome. Haha! I’ve listed all of your suggestions down so I can go through them using the internet! I’m not too sure yet whether I just want a point and shoot, or an slr film camera. We’ll see!
Thanks again guys!
Decided to just leave the Yashica for my brother to use.
Thank you! You’re far too kind. haha I really appreciate it!!
It pretty much depends on the lighting situation of the runway show. I’m always on manual mode when I shoot. A good runway show to shoot has to have enough lighting, but sometimes they’re dark, so I keep my aperture on the largest opening, which is the smallest number (ex. f/1.8). Although, using the smallest number gives such a shallow depth of field, that sometimes the whole subject isn’t in focus. If you’re lucky enough to have a decent amount of light coming in, then you should definitely raise the aperture to a bigger number. The shutter speed on the other hand is definitely what’s more important when taking runway shows. I basically bump it to whatever number freezes enough of the motion. If you want an example, you can check out the latest photo that I just posted (the profile of the model). If you view the photo on your dashboard, you can check what settings I’ve used by clicking the small italicized “i” that appears on the bottom left of the photo. Hope that helps!
