Which mode do you shoot in? - Page 2

post #11 of 45
90% aperture.

everything else either is too limiting on how to shoot or is too slow for my style

I avoid using flash for indoors. I dont know why. I think next time i should try using flash. Otherwise all the family photos i usually take are totally worthless.

Can anybody recommend what should be the highest iso i should use for my D3100?

I have a flash from my dad's old film SLR that I occasionally use with my D60. It's really nice to be able to change the angle to reduce the undesirable effects of the camera's built-in flash.

That's kind of a personal preference decision. I would say raise it until just before you are bothered by the noise and overall lower image quality. That's assuming you can control the blur at that level...

The pop up flash is total garbage i think. I ruins up the whole thing. Whats the cheapest flash i can get, so that i can turn it towards the ceiling to get more pleasant shots?

+1 for external flash unit if you can from above user

TBH there is no highest ISO to be used. If you need the shot then use as high as an ISO possible then post process but otherwise try to avoid going past 1600. In the end it is all opinion though.

edit: As for cheap flash units look for places that sell Yongnuo flashes. They are cheap decently built flash units made by a Chinese company and perform similarly to equivalent flash units sold by respective OEMs

Once, I accidentally took a picture with my finger in front of the pop-up on my D60 and it was really hot. So much so that I was contemplating trying to light some nearby sawdust on fire with it...
