An exercise in reciprocity

It's time for more practice: this time, program shift. So get your camera, get out in the field, and look for some deep and shallow depth-of-field situations. Keep your camera in program mode. And maybe a situation like this, where I have got receding into the distant, try shooting with shallow and deep depth of field, but don't go to aperture priority mode to get that depth of field. Use your program shift feature. Meter in program mode, then change your program shift control to dial in a different set of reciprocal exposures that give you the depth of field you want.

After you have done a little bit of that, try and find some moving subject matter and practice some shutter speed control using program shift. If you can find it, do a little program shift exposure compensation exercise for yourself also. Find a situation where you might want some depth of field control and some tone control. Program shift is an incredibly handy tool, and it's really worth being familiar with it.
