Rachel- Strapbook Shooting Prompt

Scrapbooking and photography go hand in hand, but not all of us are professionals. Do you ever wonder what your ISO setting should be on a sunny day? Or maybe what your white balance should be when shooting in the shade. Rachel came up with a "cheat book." Inside this mini are different settings for your DSLR. It is small enough to hang off of your camera bag strap too!
