Since you cannot set your shutter speed at precisely 20.59, go ahead and round that to the closest setting. Now you have a base number at which to begin. You will fine-tune this number when you’re on-site but take note that this is only your starting point, and you will end up making a few adjustments.

Tuck them into your camera bag, so you are ready when you get there!
