In this post I’ll be sharing my camera settings for indoor and outdoor photography. These settings have been highly requested by my coaching clients and Blueprint students. I’m excited to provide you with the information you need to improve your photography skills.
Camera settings play a crucial role in capturing the perfect shot. They determine the exposure, depth of field, and overall look of your images. However, it’s important to note that camera settings are not one size fits all. They depend on various factors such as the camera model, lenses used, lighting conditions, and location. The settings I’ll be sharing are based on my personal experience and may not be suitable for every situation. It’s essential to experiment and find what works best for you.

While camera settings are essential, it’s important to remember that the camera itself is just a tool.

In this episode I shared my camera settings for indoor and outdoor photography. These settings are based on my personal experience and may not be suitable for every situation. It’s crucial to experiment and find what works best for you and your specific equipment. Remember, photography is a creative art form and there’s no one size fits all approach. Take these settings as a starting point and adjust them to fit your uniqe style and shooting conditions.
As you continue to grow as a photographer don’t forget to invest in your skills and knowledge. Attend workshops, seek mentorship, and never stop learning. The more you understand your equipment and the principles of photography, the better equipped you’ll be to capture stunning images.
