The exposure determines how bright or dark an image will look like when you take a picture. If the picture is too bright, we call it overexposed. If it is too dark, then it’s underexposed. The light that reaches the camera’s sensor depends on three basic settings: Aperture ISO Shutter speed. These factors form what is… Continue reading Exposure Triangle Explained: The relation between aperture, shutter speed and ISO
What is aperture? Definition: The aperture of a lens is the diameter of the diaphragm opening. It determines the amount of light that enters the camera and reaches the sensor. Explanation: The camera aperture is a key factor in the exposure triangle (aperture-focal length-ISO), and also determines the depth of field. The larger the aperture number, the less light will enter… Continue reading Photography Cheat Sheet 1: What is aperture and how does it work?
Focal Length The focal length of a lens determines its angle of view, and also how much the subject will be magnified for a given photographic position. Focal length also determines the perspective of an image. Longer focal lengths require shorter exposure times to minimize burring caused by the shake of hands. The Focal Length… Continue reading Focal Length and Aperture Explained for the Photography Novice
