Play with the camera controls found in the 'Creative Zone' of an EOS Digital SLR. Here, you can really dictate the outcome of your photos and get the effects you want. Your shots will appear below where you can review, get feedback and compare the settings you used
FINDING CORRECT EXPOSURE
Getting a good exposure is a balancing act between Aperture, Shutter Speed and ISO. If you change the value of one, you might need to adjust the others to capture the right amount of light.
Blur the foreground and background around the toy plane (shallow depth of field) with a low f-stop number; or keep the photo sharp from foreground to background (wide depth of field) with a high f-stop number.
Try to use the lowest ISO possible, but if the effect you want ends up under exposured (dark) try increasing the ISO. If the effect you want ends up over exposed (bright) try decreasing the ISO. Remember a high ISO will cause grainyness in the image.
Open the Shutter for just a thousandth of a second to freeze the fast moving plane propeller, or show the movement of the propellor with a slower shutter speed like 1 second.
