Basics.


Through my 3 years of photography, I have learned more, and more everyday. I always want to expand my knowledge and better my skills. I love to learn as much as possible and further my career and my dream! If you're interested in learning as well, this is the article for you!


How Does the Camera work?

As a beginner, we tend to learn from mistakes. We make mistakes, and then we don't make them again. Pretty simple, right? No, not really. When it comes to photography it is all about creativity and finding things around him. Mistakes are different when it comes to art because there aren't mistakes with creativity. Only ways to make them even better. Cameras can be complicated. Different buttons and settings can be very intimidating. I didn't know nearly as much as I do know when I started. I was just pointing and shooting. Now, I know a ton about all the different things I can do with my camera. But this didn't happen overnight. It took years of researching, experimenting, and processes of trial and error to get to where I am today. I am still furthering myself to get better, and I will continue to do that forever.


Aperture:

Aperture is referring to the diameter of the hole inside of a lens. When you change the aperture it changes the size of that hole to let more or less light in. This can also change the depth of field of your photo.


Shutter Speed:

Shutter speed is the amount of time a camera shutter stays open. This exposes light onto the camera sensor. Slower shutter speed will create. more blurry photos. While a faster shutter speed will create much more clear photos. Like when you are shooting an object moving, you want your shutter speed faster so you can see that object clearer.


ISO:

ISO stands for International Organization for Standardization. This sensor captures the light and is controlled by ISO. The higher you set the ISO on your camera, the more sensitive it will be. It can also capture more digital noise. The lower the number, it will be less sensitive and the grain will be much finer.


Exposure:

When it comes to exposure, it. means the brightness or darkness of the photo. It seems pretty easy to take a photo that has the correct exposure. But really, it can be quite a challenge. So many things contribute to exposure. Exposure uses aperture, shutter speed, and ISO in concurrence to create the perfect shot!
