On numerous occasions I've found myself suddenly pick up the camera, to take a possum for example, and it still has the settings of last night's moon shot; I always forget to change something, you can guarantee it! Lol. Is this just because I'm a rookie or does everyone have to deal with this?
Then I thought, what if you're out somewhere photographing a landscape. The sun is setting, the is low; you don't want too much noise so you keep the low and increase the SS, , mirror lock up, maybe have bracketing on because you may do an HDR rendition later.#
Suddenly an owl or hawk starts flying around to your left looking for mice. Now you need to quickly take your camera off the , turn off bracketing and mirror lock up, increase your , reduce the SS, maybe open the a bit, increase the fps for those action shots and change your AF to centre point only...all in a matter of seconds.
Surely this must happen a lot; that someone #suddenly finds themselves wanting wildly different camera settings very quickly? #I was wondering what techniques people on the forum employed to combat such a situation?
