Think, Think, Think

Unlike what I did. I do aerial photography from a 1946 Stinson 108, and I went out on the 22nd to take some photos. I decided to try for maximum sharpness by setting the ISO high (with enough light, you don't get as much noise), and then setting the camera to use maximum aperture. This was all shot with the Tamron 18-250 mm lens (
review here)

What I didn't think about was the f.16 rule which put the shutter speed beyond what my camera can handle. Everything was over-exposed, and my camera locked up. Turning it off and then back on fixed that. I then went to a standard mode and was able to salvage some shots...
