Photographic Innoventions: Shutter Speeds and You

Posted on
Shutter speed is the time for which the shutter is held open during the taking of a photograph to allow light to reach the image sensor in a digital camera. A fast shutter speed will freeze the subject but needs plenty of light. A slower shutter speed needs less light and a more stationary subject … Continue reading "Photographic Innoventions: Shutter Speeds and You"

Photographic Innoventions: Creative Uses of Aperture

Posted on
As we learned earlier, aperture is the size of the opening in the camera’s lens measured in f-stops. I know it sounds weird but the smaller the f-stop number the larger the opening. I want to show you today how you can take advantage of apertures to create outstanding photographs. Maximum Depth of Field or … Continue reading "Photographic Innoventions: Creative Uses of Aperture"
