Question about Minolta X-370S 35mm SLR Camera
Hello my name is amanda and i am breaking out my camera after not using it for 2 years for a wedding and went to school for 2 years learing how to be a photographer i wanted to show my family my skills and forgot all my papers on what i have learned to become a good photographer and how to take good pictures can you help me set up the basics to use outside inside shutter speed with a macro 200mm lense i just need some refreshements and i am sure i can remember and this will be another learning expeirence :) i am not sure if it had let me enter my camera it just says minolta x-370 it is a 35mm
I would set this camera to auto mode to begin with. This cameras auto mode is actually an aperture priority mode which means you choose the aperture on the lens and the camera automatically chooses the correct shutter speed. For outside photography the morning hours and the evening hours will provide the best light because the light is softer and the subject will not be lit from above which usually cast unwanted shadows on your subject. If you do have to shoot during mid day I would put an external flash on your camera to fill in the shadow areas on the subject. Inside photography is often more challenging because even though the human eye can adjust to low light levels camera film is not so forgiving. You will either need to shoot with a very high ISO film, or you will need to use a flash. I would suggest using a flash since high ISO film is usually very grainy. If you can I would suggest bouncing the flash off of a white surface this should produce softer light and more pleasing portraits. I have included a link to a download of your camera manual incase you need it. If you have any other more specific questions just ask. I hope this helps!
