Re: need museum photo tips
In a museum where light is dim, you will have to manipulate shutter, aperture, and iso. There may be an indoor setting you could experiment with. Try boosting your iso way up, and then putting the camera in P mode. That would be a fairly simple way to get started But the problem will be long shutter times. Without a tripod, it will be difficult to keep the camera steady. Depending on the exibit, you may be able to lean the lens on something, or actually place it on the glass of the exibit (as long as the lens glass is not touching) Maybe a monopod would work - it's smaller than a tripod but won't be as stable. Maybe you should get a camera with image stabilization, like the S2 or S3. Practice holding the camera really still against your face and keep you elbows tucked against your body. Press the shutter lightly. Watch the focus point and make sure it stays as stable as possible. Of course, it shoild be understood that you must use the eyepiece, and not the lcd to take the shot.
