for beginners "Light makes photography. Embrace light. Admire it. Love it. But above all, know light. Know it for all you are worth, and you will know the key to photography."
---George Eastman 3 hours after sunrise and 3 hours before sunset You don't take a photograph, you make it.

study your camera's manual camera parts loading film taking photographs Tomasito.!, flickr .: Philipp Klinger :., flickr To me, photography is an art of observation. It's about finding something interesting in an ordinary place... I've found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.
---Elliott Erwitt DEFINE PHOTOGRAPHY THE BEST WAY TO LEARN “ Which of my photographs is my favorite? The one I’m going to take tomorrow. "
--- Imogen Cunningham PHOTOGRAPHY, noun, is derived from the Greek words phos ("light"), and graphis ("stylus", "paintbrush") or graphí, together meaning "drawing with light the recording of light practice, practice, practice aadnan613, flickr MisterSimbol, flickr orangeacid, flickr Peter Sundstrom, flickr stephaniereis, flickr unloading film Waleed Almotar, flickr KNOW YOUR CAMERA 1. open the back of the camera, place the film cassette upside down into the film cavity 2. pull the film out until the film leader reaches the opposite side, then insert the film leader into the slot of the film take-up spool 4. close the back of the camera and advance the film two more times 2. compose 1. focus your subject, using the center focusing circle 3. half press the shutter button to activate the meter, set shutter speed and aperture 4. fully press the shutter to take the photo 5. bracket if you have no idea what to do, follow one or more of the above techniques when you compose, and you will have a fifty-fifty chance of returning with a good picture most good photographs usually utlize one or multiple of the following compositional techniques shoot manual
work with black and white film
study (look at) others' works R.Cao, flickr be aware of camera shake when shooting hand held using slow shutter speed
the safe hand held shutter speed can be determined by taking the reciprocal of the lens' focal length, measured in mm
example: 50mm lens - 1/50 sec max
use a tripod when exceeding max amount of time that the shutter curtain is lifted NOTE THAT the shutter speed controls amount of motion recorded shutter speed aperture film sensitivity consider shutter speed as your store hours. the longer you open, the more customer, and thus more profit consider aperture as the size of your doors. The wider the door, the more customer, and thus more profit consider film speed as the efficiency of your workers. the more efficient your workers are, the more money they can get out of the customers, and thus more profit size of the lens' opening sensitivity of the film NOTE THAT graininess increases with increased sensitivity located in the lens
metal rings that open and close to let in light.
works like the pupil of an eye
usually produce the sharpest images between f/5.6 and f/11 f/2.0 f/2.8 f/4.0 f/5.6 f/8 f/11 camerashymom, flickr dannotti, flickr R.Cao, flickr kktp_, flickr Jeff Kubina, flickr ISO 100 ISO 200 ISO 400 ISO 800 ISO 1600 for beginners, use 400 speed film. its sensitivity is good for both indoor and outdoor lighting, relatively cheap and readily available Alex Frasquet, flickr megascapes, flickr Pedro Moura Pinheiro, flickr laurenlemon, flickr Jay Tankersley Photography, flickr stacijennings, flickr amount of area in focus
deep depth of field: the object photographed is in focus, forground and background also in focus.
shallow depth of field: the object photographed is in focus, foreground and background out of focus. NOTE THAT the aperture controls the depth of field 1/1000 sec 1/500 sec 1/250 sec 1/125 sec 1/60 sec 1/30 sec 1/15 sec 1.25 sec in 25 sec @1000 fps A fast shutter will freeze the motion. A slow shutter will blur the action located in the camera

maintain depth of field
bracket by changing aperture
maintain motion recorded sensor that measures the amount of light entering the lens
calculate if the settings will record enough light to get a correct exposure philippe leroyer, flickr Keith Morris, flickr idogu, flickr consider the triangle as the correct exposure
if you change one angle of the triangle, you have to change the other angles accordingly in order to maintain the triangle, or in this case, the correct exposure METER bracketing can increase your chance of getting the best exposure PHOTOGRAPHY I BLOOMINGTON HIGH SCHOOL SOUTH DEPARTMENT OF FINE ARTS be aware that you are NOT changing the film's sensitivity by setting it on the camera

you are "telling" the camera what the film's sensitivity is so the meter could work correctly f/2.0 f/2.8 f/4.0 f/5.6 f/8 f/11 f/16 be very careful with focusing when using large aperture, slight miss will throw your subject out of focus film are made of light-sensitive silver bromide crystals
sensitivity is determined by the size of the crystals
the bigger the crystals are, the more sensitive the film is to light, and the more visible the grains are to get the best quality possible, for print over 8 by 10, use slow film (ISO 100 and below)
use high speed film (ISO 800 and above) when shooting in low light or action (sports) wwarby, flickr records light
recorded image cannot be seen before processing
a.k.a "negative" because when processed it shows bright as dark and dark as bright self portraits terrible
need to be shreded burned, and buried terrible
at least shred it terrible
goes to the trash even if the person is ugly, boring, or expressionless, you can get a photo of them that does not need to be shredded, burned, and buried, just by following some of the compositional techniques consent from the photographer to use in Bloomington High School South Photography classes as negative examples for educational purposes only. intended to look terrible 3. advance the film by first pressing the shutter button and then film advance lever. The film should be wound on to the take-up spool dx reader master the fundumentals of photography
move beyond point and shoot
see the world in a different way, find beauty in the ordinary 1. press the film rewind button, usually located on the bottom of the camera film rewind button make sure the sprockets are placed into the film sprocket holes 5. set film speed NOTE: for most modern cameras, simply place the film on top of the film take-up spool and close the back of the camera ! DO NOT TOUCH THE SHUTTER BLIND

DO NOT FORCE THE FILM REWIND KNOB 2. turn the film rewind knob, note the direction, you should feel tension 3. when tension is no longer felt, open the back of the camera and take the film out vesnakozelj.com thanksalot3, youtube brace your camera clean the lens with tissues or clothing force any part of the camera overtighten tripod socket touch the shutter blinds leave cameras in hot and humid location DO holding a camera take better photographs wear the camera strap put the camera in a well-padded bag when not using put lens cap back on the lens put a clear or uv filter on lens try to repair your camera yourself DON'T classical camera focusing screen modern camera focusing screen stand with your feet shoulder distance apart, with left foot a little bit in front for better support wrap your left hand around the bottom of the lens

if you forgot to rewind and opened the camera, immediately close it and rewind

if you hear a tearing sound, or if the film becomes detached from the cassette, open the camera in total darkness and transfer the film into a light-proof container
