This Picture Shows How Aperture, Shutter Speed, and ISO Affect Your Photos

It’s a simple look at how the “exposure triangle” — aperture, shutter speed, and ISO — affect the outcome of photographs. It’s not a complete picture, of course (for example, it doesn’t say why you’d ever choose a higher ISO versus a lower one), but it could be a nice illustrated reference for those just starting out in photography. The image was made by Daniel Peters of Photoblog Hamburg, where you can download a printable PDF of it.

This Incredible Flower Timelapse Took 3 Years and 8TB of Photos to Create. Filmmaker Jamie Scott made his name in the timelapse space with Fall, a Central Park timelapse of epic proportions that took 6 months of dedication to capture.

This Incredible Flower Timelapse Took 3 Years and 8TB of Photos to Create

And yet his followup timelapse, titled Spring, somehow puts his first creation to shame. Spring is the flower timelapse to end all flower timelapses. “All in all this took 3 years to shoot,” writes Jamie on Vimeo. “I shot over 8TB of 5k footage.” The goal, says Jamie, was to create the “polar opposite” of the Fall timelapse. So Jamie popped his Canon 5D Mark II and a 24mm lens onto a Dynamic Perception Stage One slider and started shooting… and shooting… and shooting some more.

Perhaps the most stunning aspect of the whole short film is Jamie’s seamless transitions.

Nikon FM - Wikipedia

It was manufactured in Japan between 1977 and 1982 by Nippon Kogaku K. K. (now Nikon Corporation). History[edit] The FM was the replacement for Nikkormat FT3, which had been introduced only a few months prior. These cameras were intended to provide a more reasonably priced alternative to Nikon's professional F-series cameras, which at the time was the Nikon F2. The FM has proven to be a remarkably long-lived and reliable camera.

Design and construction[edit] The FM is constructed almost entirely from metal and uses a mechanical shutter. For its time, the FM used a modern titanium-bladed, vertical-travel focal plane shutter capable of speeds from 1 second to 1/1000 of a second, plus bulb. The body has dimensions of 89.5 mm height, 142 mm width, 60.5 mm depth and 590 g weight. Lens compatibility[edit] Bienvenido a Jicuri Drum.

Film and digital capture are completely different media. Most people get better results with digital cameras. I get my digital prints made at Costco and they look stunning. Labs usually make awful prints from film, which is why people who don't print their work personally get better results from digital. Large format film still rules for serious landscape photography. I use digital for people, fun shots and convenience. The biggest reason the results look different is the highlights.
