What is Photography?
"writing, delineation, or painting"
“Painting with light”
Capturing the right amount of light on the film/digital sensor.
Art and Science of Photography
It is through the successful combination of these two elements that the creation of world-class photographs can be accomplished.
technique and equipment
the photographer's artistic goals, his vision, inspiration and the use of art-related concepts
These two parts need to merge seamlessly for the creation of a successful world-class photograph to take place.
If one or these two parts dominates the other the result is either a technically excellent photograph without much artistic interest, or a very artistic photograph lacking technical excellence.
Is the concept of your camera sensor/film being expose to light.
Three factors that work together to get the right exposure:
Larger number = faster shutter speed
Measured in fractions of a second/seconds (1/125; 1/16,000; 1"; 25"...)
It is called the
One can set the amount of time the shutter is open.
The camera exposes the film/sensor briefly by opening the shutter.
Kinds of Lenses
According to type:
According to Focal Length:
Full frame (35mm film) vs. Digital APS-C
Stands for International Standards Organization.
Refers to the actual sensitivity of film/sensor to light
Higher ISO, more light sensitive
Shutter speed, ISO and aperture are interconnected through stops.
Getting the Right Light
Mixing things up...
A perfectly exposed photo can be achieved by mixing up settings to achieve your desired effect on the photo.
“Give a stop, take a stop”.
The lens has an opening (iris) that can be adjusted to influence
the amount of light that enters the camera.
The amount the iris can be adjusted in called the
The aperture is measured through an
F-number is inverse.
Bending the rules...
Photography isn’t about always following the rules.
It is an art where one is expected to express himself in his most creative ways.
Photography is not about getting all the equipment, nor is it having the perfect exposure always.
Photography is about having a good eye...to observe, to seek, to discover and expose the beauty of the world and inspire others, teaching them to express themselves in ways that not many fully understand.
