On the festive square heavily festooned with Christmas decorations, a pair of young lovers asked the author to help take a shot of them. Having handed over the expensive camera, the happy man went back to his girl and both sat still posing for the picture. But wait a minute! The exposure combo said f9.0 and 0.7s at ISO 400! The author returned the camera to the man saying that he would certainly end up with blurry shot. The suggestion was to stop down the aperture and tune up the ISO at least to 800. The reply in the form of a question was whether the ISO 800 would slow down the camera.
Maybe the camera cycle has gone too fast, the marketing departments have done so good a job and technology has made so very wide leaps that the basics of photography need to be talked about more.
