I am by no means an expert on camera settings or nailing exposure every time SOOC. But I have had a few people ask about how I shoot when I'm riding (which is where the majority of my images are made). For the most part I set my aperture to between f4-5.6, my shutter to at least 1/1000 to stop motion, and my ISO on auto. My choice for auto ISO comes stems from a couple of facts:
1. I am on a horse that is always in motion so I need to have a fairly fast shutter and fairly open aperture- so those are constant
2. In the early morning, the light is constantly changing as the sunrises and I change my position to the sun
3. One less thing to think about while I am actually suppose to be working at the same time is a good thing!!
There are times that my camera chooses a very high ISO, as in the case of this image, so I do get a bit of noise. For me though, capturing these images is worth the noise 😊
