Hey Marilene, you know a lot about photography, right?

More or less, why?
  A: Bom, tirando fotos de aves e animais, que modo de disparo você prefere?
When taking pictures of birds and animals, which shooting mode do you prefer?
  B: Depende, a prioridade do obturador é boa pra congelar o movimento, por exemplo esses pássaros que batem as asas rapidamente.
It depends, shutter priority is good to freeze the movement, for example the birds that beat their wings rapidly.
  A: E a prioridade de abertura?
And aperture priority?
  B: Eu gosto mais de abertura para desfocar o fundo.
I like that more to blur the background.
  A: OK, e o ISO, qual é melhor?
And how about ISO, which is better?
  B: Quanto menor que fica, menos que gera ruído, tenta com 100 ou 200 primeiro.
The lower it is, the less noise is generated, try with 100 or 200 first.

How do you know about this girl?
