Suppose we have time to shoot with an DSLR. Before actually shooting, some settings have to be adjusted to get a picture. Suppose we have a brand new DSLR in hand and every setting has to be defined.
Of course, getting the right picture depends on the subject, the context, the personal taste, etc. but I don't matter on the artistic point of view, just on the order (if such a determined one exists) and the importance of all the required technical step.
As a debutant, I imagine it could be this (rather simple) one:
- ISO, depending on the current lightness ;
- white balance, depending on the light color ;
- aperture, depending on the desired depth of field ;
- composition, depending on the subject ;
- shutter speed, depending on the desired exposition ;
Is this a correct way to handle things? Is such an order (this one or another) very typical or does it change for each picture? If different, what's yours, and why?
