Friday Photo Tip: UNDERSTANDING APERTURE

Understanding The Aperture in Photography for Beginners

Let’s take a look at a definition of Aperture from Wikipedia:

“In optics, an aperture is a hole or an opening through which light travels….”

It looks pretty complicated, doesn’t it?

Easy Way to Understand the Aperture

It is good to know all these complicated scientific terms as photographers, but they don’t help us take better photos. My photography classes simplify all these terms to real-life uses of the camera’s settings. So stick with me, and I’ll show you a way to understand the Aperture quite easily and learn how to use the Aperture not only to control the light (Exposure) but also the creative uses of Aperture.

Practical Uses of Aperture

Le’s get to the practical uses of Aperture in photography rather than the scientific explanations. In general terms, and for all types of photography, the Aperture is the unit of measurement that defines the size of the opening in the lens, which can be adjusted to control the amount of light reaching the film or digital sensor. The size of the Aperture is measured in f-stops. The lower the number (f-stop), the larger opening, which allows more light to pass through; the higher the f-stop, the narrower the opening, with less light coming through the lens.

How/where do I change the Aperture setting?

In modern digital cameras, you can control the Aperture’s f-stops through the camera body. If you set your camera to Aperture Priority (A or AV), you set the f-stop using the main command dial, and your camera adjusts the shutter speed accordingly.

Wednesday Photography Tips: LANDSCAPE PHOTOGRAPHY TIP

Easy Landscape Photography Tip 

Landscape Photography is the easiest and yet more skillful category in photography. Today, Brett Michaud shared a landscape photography tip, and it is straightforward to follow.

Brett’s Landscape Photography Tip 

Landscape photography is a popular genre, and many new photographers try to master landscape photography techniques. Here is a quick tip for a widespread skill among photographers. 

 

I used a 30-second exposure to give the water a soft, almost ethereal look in this image. This effect helps to convey movement and is a popular technique amongst landscape photographers. 

 

This technique requires using a neutral density filter in bright light conditions, which effectively restricts the amount of light that strikes the sensor in your camera.

Do you want to learn more about Landscape Photography Techniques?

Photographers and artists use many different techniques to create great scenery masterpieces. Most of these techniques are simple and easy to apply.

Quick Camera Tip: BULB SETTING

What is BULB Setting or B?

Most digital cameras have a wide range of shutter speeds, all the way from 1/4000sec down to 30 seconds!

 

But what if you want to shoot for longer than 30 seconds?

Here comes the BULB setting or B setting. When you set the camera to Bulb or B and press the shutter trigger and hold, the shutter opens and stays open as long as you hold down the shutter trigger.

Important Precautions for Using Bulb Setting 

While shooting in Bulb mode, you need to consider these tips: 

1- Measure the exposure by guessing or using a handheld light meter. The camera’s built-in light meter does not work.

2- You need to do the timing. For instance, if you want to shoot for 2 minutes, you need to count the time.

3- If you activate the “Long Exposure Noice Reduction” in your camera, remember that the camera needs to take a dark exposure, which takes the same amount of time. So, be patient! 

There are many uses for Bulb setting, such as firework or astrophotography.

Wednesday Photography Tips: HORIZON

HORIZON PLACEMENT IN LANDSCAPE PHOTOGRAPHY

The placement of the horizon makes a significant change in landscape photography. It can make your photo mediocre or excellent!

Here are a few tips for you to consider:

1- Regardless of the location of the horizon, try to keep it as straight as possible.
2- A little crooked horizon is annoying, Too much tilted is artistic!
3- Use the Rule of Thirds as a guideline for placing the horizon in photos.

Horizon in Centre

Creative Photography
Horizon Line in the centre of the frame. Kind of boring!

Horizon off Centre

Creative Photography
By setting the Horizon Line in the lower part of the frame ( Rule Of Thirds), I created a perfect photograph.
