Transcript of Intro to photography

Shutter Speed ... If you are having trouble with these two modes switch to (P mode) Links http://camaddio.tumblr.com/ ISO ISO is the sensitivity of the camera to light General Tips Be patient Incorrect ISO ISO 1600 Correct ISO ISO 100 More Tips on your camera dial are several different modes (macro, AV, TV, M ect...)

If you choose AV mode...
you change the F Stop and the camera will change it to the appropriate shutter speed An Intro to Photography Aperture (F Stop) The more pictures the better Always have a tripod Always have your camera with you Be aware of your background Keep your eyes open clutter is bad the more you take the better the chance of a good one be willing to spend time trying different settings General Rules High light (studio, full sun, no clouds) ISO-100

Mid light (Cloudy, bright room-mid lighted room, in a shadow) ISO 200-400

Low light( No sun, dark forest, dim room) ISO 800-3200 Note: brighter is better in most cases, especially with human/animal subjects, the higher the ISO the grainier the photo how fast the shutter opens, then closes when the
shot is taken the amount of light the camera lets into the camera through the opening in the lens General rules with light and Aperture- If you want a brighter picture (dark situation)
Low F Stop (F2.8)

If you want a darker picture (bright situation)
High F Stop (F16) Here is the difference between F2.8 and F16 (for Light) Another thing that Aperture changes is the depth of focus General Rules with Aperture and Depth of Focus If you only the subject in focus you want a small F-stop for example F4

If you want everything in focus you want a large F-stop for example F16 Here is the difference between F4 and F16 (for DOF) F2.8 F16 F4 F16 the faster a shot is taken, the more frozen the motion in the picture…or the lower the amount of light allowed in the camera For situations involving motion you want a higher shutter speed 1/125 or 1/200 of a second For situations involving still subjects you want a slower shutter speed 1/60 of a second Note: anything below 1/60 requires a tripod which is why I suggest having one at all times ...For Shutter speed and light For bright subjects you want a faster shutter speed 1/200 For dark subjects you want a slower shutter speed 1/60 0r below (below 1/60 needs tripod) 1/200th second 1/60th second background in focus background out of focus speed and the camera will change to the appropriate F stop If you choose TV mode..
you change the shutter small F stop-lets in more light large F stop-lets in less light P mode or Program mode will change both settings but you can also step in and change them All models of Digital SLR cameras have at least two dials, the one with the picture and the one just for turning, even if you don't know how the camera works you need to experiment with these in order to master the settings my tumblr account

scroll over the bottom left corner of a picture and click on the cursive i to see the settings I used Here are some of my own photos and the settings I used, to help you get started... iso 100


SS 1/320th second iso 400


SS 1/160th second iso 100


SS 1/250th second iso 100


SS 1/1600th second iso 800


SS 1/50th second iso 400


SS 1/80th second note- snow is very bright even with no sun
may require low iso and high SS fast shutter speed- less light slower shutter speed- more light Final notes... 1. The settings presented are simply the bare
bones of photography and there is certainly much more to learn... but before you go searching for more learn to master these settings and how to manipulate them for your photographic situation 2. Although the camera you have is extremely capable of taking great photos keep your expectations reasonable, nothing about photography is easy and to be a professional takes countless hours of experience and time
