Low shutter speed = blur images

Higher Shutter Speed = clearer images ( Use this when taking videos or pictures of people moving.

What is ISO

https://improvephotography.com/photography-basics/aperture-shutter-speed-and-iso/

When is ISO good and when is it bad?

When you have high ISO you get noise, this ruins the image ( you don't want this)

When is ISO good,

ISO is good when it is used at 800, anything higher than that ruins the image ( Iso image also depends on which camera you are using)

Where to start?

Put the camera on Manuel ( M)

Adjust your settings, Shutter speed / Aperture.

I mostly put the ISO on auto.

Shooting profile,

Natural is always the best profile to take photos in
