"Aperture Priority" - Digital Photography Podcast 132

Aperture priority mode is perfect for controlling depth of field. In this podcast I give some tips for using aperture priority, plus I talk about the upcoming Bert Monroy video interview.

Motion is this month's photo assignment. There are all sorts of possibilities for showing motion, from panning moving objects, to slowing down your shutter speed, to moving yourself. You can read more about how to submit on our Submissions page. Deadline for entry is June 30.

My K10D has a "user" setting where you can configure your settings the way you use them the most. I use that to set the camera to Av and ISO 100. It's very useful. My camera also lets you make adjustments in P mode so that I can change either the aperture or the shutter speed, as if I had switched to Av or Tv. I am guessing many other cameras can do this also. Yet another reason to read the manual from time to time (and the Magic Lantern guide if your camera has one).

Just wanted to let you know: recently, my iTunes has been telling me that the Digital Story's feed URL does not seem to be a valid podcast URL. It gives me the little exclamation mark next to the podcast in the Podcast listing. Wondering if it's just me!

Hi Peter,

Just resubscribe in iTunes, and you should be set. Let me know if that doesn't work. And no, it isn't just you ;)

Derrick: That didn't seem to fix it for me. I'm still getting the same error.
