Transcript of Introduction to DSLR Photography

Basics of DSLR Photography Types of Camera Point & Shoot Hybrid / Ultra-zoom DSLR What is DSLR? Digital Single Lens Reflex
Provides manual control over each aspect of a shot
Focus, Aperture, Shutter Speed, ISO and so on
Large range of lenses available
Can do crazy things :) Pre-defined settings for easy use Gives more control over settings Full control to the user Has very limited capabilities Great zoom capabilities Lenses - Types:
Wide angle: 10 - 50 mm
Normal: 50 - 70 mm
Tele-photo: 100+ mm - Sub-type:
Zoom - Zoom ring and/or focus ring - Denoted by:
Focal length
AF / EF Exposure Aperture Shutter Speed ISO = Analogy Water Valve Sponge ISO = Sponge's soaking speed
Aperture = Pipe's diameter
Shutter speed = Duration of valve being open
Light = Water Pipe - Bishwas Bhatta Aperture Pipe's diameter
Controls the amount of light entering the lens
Big role in determining "Depth of Field"
Denoted by f. Example: f/4
Smaller the number, bigger the aperture Shutter Speed The time for which the valve remains open
Controls the duration for which light enters the camera
Denoted in fractions of a second or in seconds. Eg: 1000, 10"
Special setting called Bulb ISO Sponge's rate of absorption
Sensitivity of image sensor
Denoted by numbers. Example: 200, 400
High ISO results in grains/noise
Not changed that frequently Stops Change of one unit is counted as one stop
Example: 4 - 5.6 is one stop
Decreasing of 1 stop decreases the amount of light entering the sensor by half
Helpful for balancing between the three parameters Canon Rebel XS 10.1 MP
ISO: 100-1600
Shutter speed: 30-1/4000 seconds
Auto focus: 7 points Handling tips Posture and holding
Changing Lenses
General walkthrough Camera modes Using Rebel XS Switching between focus modes
Using auto-focus points
Using histogram
Using EV meter
Burst/Continuous shooting
Auto exposure bracketing
Manual selection of AF points DSLR tricks Long exposure Light Painting Bokeh Panning Depth of Field HDR Conclusion This presentation is just to help you get started
There are lots of things to explore in a DSLR
Read the manual
Experiment and have fun
