Basic Exposure in Photography

This is the triangle of exposure, informing about the basic rules of exposure in photography. Shutter speed (time value), aperture value and ISO effects the exposure of the photograph, they also have some side effects. I draw this diagram a couple of years ago for myself. Now I can take it one step further and add secondary side effects too, which are generally ignored by photographer because they are very subtle.It is accepted by DT admins (took a lot of time to accept it) and I'm proud to be... continue reading

Underwater photo tip: higher shutter speed!

This august I was in Red Sea and I did an early morning dive in the bay near the resort.With my Canon G9 digital camera and flash YS27DX I had a lot of troubles because of low shutter speed. So I tried to use high ISO values (more than 400 ISO) but I noticed that noise was really a lot!So I had the idea: fix 200 ISO and start to underexpose (1 or 2 stop) and compense the low light with more flash power! In this way I had higher shutter speed and darker background with the result of a more tridimensionality... continue reading

Dealing with shutter speed

Already two of my articles came up under useful articles. It just means that, aside of many expert photographers, there are enough starter users who recognize those basics valuable.A few words today about shutter speed. Lets just remind that shutter speed is one of the "holly trinity" element when we capture light to our film or sensor. The other two are aperture and ISO sensitivity. I like the metaphor which I read in one book. We can compare those three parameters as catching the sun for bronze... continue reading
