AUTO ISO for Sharper Photos!
AUTO ISO for Sharper Photos!
Better Fuji Photos Episode 3: AUTO ISO for Sharper Photos I was haunted by unwanted motion blur for years when I started my digital photography journey. Keeping track of an ISO that would produce noise-free photos and a shutter speed fast enough to freeze motion seemed to be beyond my grasp. But then I became comfortable using auto ISO. Suddenly (most of) my photos were sharp as a tack! And I've never looked back; it continues to be one of my favorite exposure features. In this episode, we’ll discuss the argument for not caring about noise, letting the camera handle the ISO decisions, and how to set up Auto ISO in Fujifilm cameras. All for making exposure easier and getting sharper photos!

The Photography Scavenger Hunt!
The Photography Scavenger Hunt!
Better Fuji Photos Episode 2: The Photography Scavenger Hunt! Scavenger hunts aren't just games! This is something that I do with all of my photography students during photo walks. It doesn't just make it fun and give them something to do, but it challenges them and produces results. Having something like this when you go out with your camera serves two purposes: 1) It serves as a prompt when you have the photographer's version of writer's block. When you just don't know what to capture photos of. This list will give you ideas. 2) It helps you learn how to see these compositional elements that can make your photographs more interesting. It trains your brain for the long game. Download this list in the link below and either print it out as a 4x6 index card to carry in your camera bag, save it to your phone, or adapt your own list out of it.
