Back it the day, the thing that would get the hairs on the back of my neck standing on end would be seeing a HDR image. They would be over processed and hurt the eyes, smacking your senses with a blast of oversaturated colour.
Yes, it is, technically, I guess. I don't know for sure because I can't afford one but what I can tell you for sure, the best camera in the world is the one that you have in your hand.
We all window shop, dreaming of more dynamic range and more megapixels. But the truth is we should be concentrating more on the image.
Not on your nelly!
I am going to write a sentence that may have purists cringing in their boots. I keep my camera on automatic when not being used and have the camera set to jpeg and RAW.
Aperture is just a fancy name for a hole, and I'm guessing that early photographers thought it rude to shout "how big's your hole" so Aperture it is.
ISO forms part of the exposure triangle. We'll be looking at the exposure triangle in a later tutorial. Where we put together ISO, Shutter Speed, and Aperture. In this tutorial, we will look at ISO as an individual element.
Start to juggle three balls - what could possibly go wrong?
I don't know how you felt about it, or do feel about it, but that's how I experienced the thought of shooting fully manual for the first time.
I'm a photographer, and that to me means that I try to capture everything that I find interesting, and in the case of stock photography, subjects that sell. I love capturing images of people, predominantly through portraiture, but also by enjoying the challenges of street photography. So if I list types of photography and the first two on the list include people, why do I always tell newcomers to start with landscape photography? Is it because it's easier?
No... Well, that was a quick blog. But I guess that I cant leave it there. I should at least try to explain my thinking.
So, I have a day off work midweek and thought it was going to be an ideal day to go out and take some photographs. The Gower is much quieter on the weekdays, especially in winter. I didn't mind that it was going to be cold, I can dress for that, but it was forecast dry, and that for me is the important thing. What I hadn't bargained on was the lack of light, and what was available was flat, dull and boring, so ended up, in the car, parked, over looking a bay, thinking about my favourite channels on YouTube.
Look up RAW v Jpeg on the internet or YouTube, and there are as many opinions about the subject as any political issue. It's one of photography's great debates. So why shouldn't I put in my two pennies worth?
