When the bride comes down the aisle, the church is probably fairly dark. The camera will hold the shutter open longer, and movement, including your own, will cause the picture to blur. Be careful to hold it still long enough in low light conditions.
I am an aspiring photographer with lots to learn. I have an non-digital SLR but am still learning about the basics: f-stops, exposure compensations, how to focus, etc. I've spent too much money on developing film to see my mistakes and now want to buy a manual digital camera that will help me learn faster with fewer printing expenses.
Can anyone recommend:
1. a good book to learn how to use manual features more effectively?
2. a good digital camera to practice manual features?
"Good" for me would probably mean: easy to use features, good quality images, lots to play with but also not overly complicated. I'm thinking of the Canon Powershot A75 or S500 or Konica Dimage Xg or Fuji S5100.
PS: One frustration of my first non-manual digital camera is not being able to take action shots - by action I mean, a bride walking slowly down the aisle. Is this me? or my camera (a basic Fuji A203)?
Thanks for any advice
