Tip of the Week
Learn from Others, Look in to EXIF - Sometimes we find good photos online and wonder how the photographer captured the photo and what camera settings they were using. Thanks to new technology, every photo captured by digital cameras should have EXIF data (if the camera supports the function). If the photographer didn't block the data and posts the photo to a website which also support EXIF, you will be able to see all the camera settings of that photo. What camera has been used for that photo, exposure time, aperture setting and what lens has been used are clearly shown.
If you are interested in giving it a try, please go to flickr.com and select the photo you like, click on "More properties" in "Additional Information" area (on the right hand side), you should be able to see the settings unless the photographer blocked it.
