Camera Exposure: Aperture, ISO &Shutter Speed A photograph's exposure determines how light or dark an image will appear when it's been captured by your camera. Believe it or not, this is determined by just three camera settings: aperture, ISO and shutter speed (the "exposure triangle"). Mastering their use is an essential part of developing an intuition for photography. Achieving the correct exposure is a lot like collecting rain in a bucket. In photography, the exposure settings of aperture, shutter speed and ISO speed are analogous to the width, time and quantity discussed above. Each setting controls exposure differently: Aperture: controls the area over which light can enter your cameraShutter speed: controls the duration of the exposureISO speed: controls the sensitivity of your camera's sensor to a given amount of light One can therefore use many combinations of the above three settings to achieve the same exposure. By the Numbers. How it Appears. Slow Shutter Speed Fast Shutter Speed By the Numbers. How it Appears.

DIY Macrame Bracelet - Honestly WTF Growing up by the beach in Southern California, the ability to knot a macrame bracelet was practically a right of passage. Although those days are long behind us, we’ve never forgotten the ever-so-simple square knot technique. This time, however, we’re replacing hemp and wooden beads for more updated elements like colorful nylon cord and glossy metal charms. You’ll need: Start by cutting the knotting cord into two 30 inch, two 20 inch and one 10 inch lengths. Center the 30 inch cord under the two middle strands. Pull tightly and slide the knot up to the top. Finish the 2nd half of the square knot by folding the left cord over the middle strands and under the right cord. Pull tightly and repeat the steps – left, right, left, right . . . To finish the knots, thread one of the cords onto a needle and sew up the center of 3-4 knots along the backside. Repeat the same step on the other cord. After sewing up both knotting cords, trim away any excess.

10 Units of Measure You Don’t Know | Words You Dont Know I became interested units of measure when, quite a while ago, I read a book by Professor Alexander Thom, the man who discovered the megalithic yard. This bright Scottish Professor suspected that the megalithic stone circles strewn across the British Isles and Northern France were probably arranged in some measured way. By surveying many of them he eventually deduced the unit of measure to be 2.72 feet, which he promptly named the megalithic yard. The megalithic yard was probably eclipsed by the much more popular cubit, which is also a bit passé. The origin of the modern yard is not known for sure, although it is suspiciously close to 2 cubits (not Egyptian cubits, you idiot, Roman cubits). Just as there is a story behind the yard, there is a story behind every unit of measure. 1. When a Frenchman reaches the number soixante-neuf, being French, he gets completely distracted and forgets how to count properly. Pages: 1 2 3 4 5

Focusing Basics | Aperture and Depth of Field Depth of Field Depth of Field (DOF) is the front-to-back zone of a photograph in which the image is razor sharp. As soon as an object (person, thing) falls out of this range, it begins to lose focus at an accelerating degree the farther out of the zone it falls; e.g. closer to the lens or deeper into the background. With any DOF zone, there is a Point of Optimum focus in which the object is most sharp. There are two ways to describe the qualities of depth of field - shallow DOF or deep DOF. Shallow is when the included focus range is very narrow, a few inches to several feet. Aperture The aperture is the opening at the rear of the lens that determines how much light travels through the lens and falls on the image sensor. Small vs Large Aperture Manipulating the aperture is the easiest and most often utilized means to adjust Depth of Field. Aperture Range Distance from the Lens Conclusion You might also like:
