Photography 101 Tutorial: How To Use Shutter Speed. While aperture refers to how narrow or wide a camera’s shutter opens, the shutter speed determines how long it stays open.

Photography 101 Tutorial: How To Use Shutter Speed

A faster shutter speed lets in less light, and a longer shutter speed allows more light to reflect off your subject and onto the camera’s sensor. Photography, like our vision, is all about light reflecting off the surfaces in a scene and exposing/recording internally as an image. As I discussed in my post about aperture, when you’re shooting in Aperture Priority (Av) mode, you select the aperture, and your camera’s built in light meter will measure what the shutter speed should be. As you decrease the size of the aperture, thus decreasing the amount of light that can reach your camera’s sensor at a given moment, the shutter speed will slow down to allow enough time for the proper amount of light to get through.

If the aperture is larger, thus allowing more light in at one time, the shutter speed is faster to keep from allowing too much light. Canon Explains Exposure. A Little About Exposure: Exposure is the amount of light a digital camera's sensor captures when a photo is taken.

Canon Explains Exposure

Too much light results in a washed out photo (overexposed). Too little light and the photo will be too dark (underexposed). A camera's Aperture, Shutter Speed and ISO settings directly affect exposure, but more importantly, they allow you to control how each photo will look. Aperture - Control the amount of blur or sharpness around your subject. What it is and what it does: The aperture setting controls the size of the lens opening that allows light into your camera.You can blur the foreground and background that bracket your subject (known as shallow depth of field) by opening up the aperture with a low f-stop number; alternatively, you can keep your photo sharp from the foreground through to the background (known as wide depth of field) by closing the aperture down with a high f-stop number.

Foreground and background blur make the subject stand out. ProMonitor Support. BetterPhoto Instructor Insights: Photography Panning for Sports and Action.

Diagonal Leading Lines in Photography Composition

You can use them to create a strong impression of movement or you can use them to create a tremendous sense of depth. All images are created with lines—some vertical, horizontal and others converging—but knowing how to place them affects the mood and composition of the final image. A sense of order is created with vertical and horizontal lines, implying stability and strength. Diagonals are unbalanced and appear to be unstable. 52 photography projects: a photo idea to try every week of the year.

Interview with Fine Art Portrait Photographer Bill Gekas

A young girl with rosy cheeks, big wide eyes and a serious look on her face stood against a green wallpapered wall dressed in a bright red jacket while holding a bowl of cherries. The image was striking on many levels – the subject, the colour, the pose, the style of the image and what it evoked on an emotional level all caused me to look twice. The photographer was Bill Gekas and a quick look through the rest of his work revealed some beautiful images with a distinct style and attention to detail.

How to photograph textures

For many photographers, the thought of using only our built-in flash makes us cringe – and for good reasons. When not carefully altered, the pop-up flash gives off a harsh, direct light that is unnatural. Your photographs will turn out flat every time because the head-on direction of the light erases any shadows that would have added depth or texture.

Many times the pop-up flash will overexpose the subject if it is too close in range and the flash intensity is not adjusted accordingly. Introduction to Exposure. Exposure is one of the most basic elements of photography, and most important. In its most basic sense, exposure is how light or dark everything appears in the image. This process begins when light from a source reflects off the objects in your scene.

That light enters your camera through the lens and is absorbed by the sensor. 15283. Quizalize. Assignment 3 – Colour – Research – Ernst Haas.
