DSLR Camera Settings for Shooting Photos from Space
I know everyone is clamoring about the great wet towel-wringing video the CSA put online last week, but today's video from Commander Chris Hadfield aboard the ISS is my new favorite. Filming from inside the International Space Station's "cupola" module, Commander Hadfield explains the camera settings he uses for shooting photos of Earth from 400km above ground. High f-stop, low ISO, and a 400mm Nikkor lens all work together for his great photos. But the best part is when Hadfield describes how he approaches framing his shots, and what he looks for when shooting a landscape like the Sahara desert.
