I am a novice fashion photographer and have been attempting to master the art of shooting in manual mode. I have a Canon 60D and was hoping to get some tips on setting the aperture, shutter speed, ISO, exposure meter, etc. to achieve a professional looking image that shows a clear subject with a bokeh background.
I've been advised as a beginner to master the art of shooting in manual mode before attempting the other settings. What I'm trying to accomplish is shooting a fashion blogger with the desired bokeh background. I have been having difficulty capturing my subject (the fashion blogger) without making her appear overexposed or grainy while maintaining the bokeh effect. I am looking for the winning formula from professional photographers who have experience shooting fashion bloggers.
