This Friday’s photo link brings us back to our Photography basics. It is short and easy reading so, go for it.
I am sharing a concept that is helping me make the gradual shift into manual mode. This concept is called the “exposure triangle“. To easily understand to three main aspects that make up every photograph: exposure, aperture and ISO.
If you shoot everything in automatic mode, that is OK. But, you may want to read this easy intro to these photography basics. Because it can be exciting to challenge yourself to go a little further.
Two examples using manual mode and how I corrected myself . Bear with me, automatic photo shooters…
>1/800th of a second, aperture, f 11, ISO 200.
A high-speed ( I thought “movement”), plus a medium lens opening did nada for the bee’s image.
Right on… A moderate speed and a wee bit smaller lens opening (that let in a bit more light). The bees and I were happy campers!! (Note: sorry if you caught my mistake yesterday; it is not a ” wee bit bigger opening” but a smaller one).
Don’t be afraid to make mistakes. That’s the only way to learn and advance.
Happy weekend to all.
