Photographer's Pocket Guide


Photo Pocket Guides are available in a Print Version to assist photographers in their camera settings such as f-Stop Aperture,  Shutter Speed, ISO and White Balance needed to capture their desired images. The guide gives explanations on how a camera’s settings work and how they affect your image.

The guides are meant to be carried in your pocket, gear bag and/or on your Smart Devices (e.g. iPhone, Android, Tablet, iPad, etc.) so you can see what settings are needed to capture the image you envision. For example, isolating the subject with a blurred background, stopping action or creating a deep depth of field so everything is in focus.
