Gaining the ability to judge this is key to getting a beautiful image. It allows you to take images using three different exposure settings. shutter priority and programme mode. Actually your shutter speed is always the same. Here's how to get your head around a camera's exposure systems.81 Understanding exposure is a fundamental of photography. Very important when depth of field is a consideration. As I said previously. It's the length of time the shutter stays open that is important. We've all heard the words underexposed or overexposed but what does it actually mean and how do you get the perfect exposure. in order to choose a depth of field we need to increase or decrease the aperture setting or f-stop. If you are not sure how to get your exposure perfect then your photos will be sub-standard. 1. Exposure is controlled by two features on your camera. aperture priority. A camera has three exposure systems. The size of your aperture and the speed of your shutter. The bigger the aperture. It's very easy once you get the hang of it. This is important with bracketing as well. What is exposure? Exposure is basically how much light you allow to reach your film or digital sensor and for what duration in time. Aperture Priority What this does is allows you to choose the size of your aperture. This is where exposure bracketing comes in. When you change one it has an effect on the other. In the days of film it was essential to bracket when on important shoots. I would say that exposure is the next most important aspect of photography. Once you've chosen your aperture the camera will choose the correct shutter speed. This is insurance against using just one setting that may not be perfect. Let's not go there now. So key to shooting a great image is understanding how exposure works. You can leave it up to the camera and shoot on fully automatic but this doesn't always work as the light meter of your camera is not always reliable under extreme lighting conditions. Again it's practise and developing your photographic eye. After selecting the subject and creating a good composition. There is a strong relationship between shutter speed and aperture. the faster the shutter .
Shutter Priority This allows you to set the amount of time the shutter remains open usually measured in tenths of a second right up to thousandths. if all the colours reaching your sensor were liquid and you could mix them after the exposure. Programme mode.82 speed as it needs to reduce the amount of light hitting the sensor caused by the larger aperture. not as accurate as it needs to be. Once you have chosen the settings the camera meter will show you how far off you are. usually opening it up to a larger f-stop. Imagine. 4. It usually does this with a combination favouring shorter exposures to compensate for camera shake. You set the aperture and shutter speeds independently of each other. Manual mode This is the fully manual setting whereby you receive no assistance from the camera's light meter. You determine the time it stays open. It's particularly useful when taking photos of action or fast moving objects. Now all of this is great. It's one step ahead of fully automatic as it allows you to manually set the flash. what if the camera is wrong or rather. 2. Camera metering systems are not infallible. It would result in just an 18% grey image. As I've already mentioned they have one goal and that is to reduce the whole scene to an average of 18% grey. You can then bring meter setting closer to the recommended either by changing the aperture dial or shutter speed. to freeze the action. 3. But. This allows you to compensate for the incorrect reading the light meter can produce under varying lighting conditions. and the camera sets the correct aperture to compensate for this. . This allows the camera to set both the shutter speed and the aperture setting automatically. The camera is assisting you in setting half of the process. So what do you do if the camera gets it all wrong? Camera designers and manufacturers have thought about this problem and added a little feature called aperture compensation.
com/21steps.21steps2perfectphotos. When you use a digital camera. This allows you to refine what the camera thinks is the best exposure. If the scene has a lot of white the camera thinks that it needs to compensate for this and so it closes down the aperture or shortens the shutter speed thereby giving a grey image. The camera sees too much and opens up the aperture or slows the shutter speed adding extra light to lighten the scene. The same works for black. you are bound to get clear and precise photographs but this depends on who takes the photo. Most times the meter is perfectly correct.htm Wayne Turner has been teaching photography for 25 years and has written three books on photography. What aperture compensation then does is counter the stopping up or down of the aperture or slowing down or speeding up the shutter speed made camera meter.

Digital Photography Changed the Way in Which We Look at Family Photos
We are all well aware that Digital photography has changed the way in which we look at our family photos. It was only a few short years ago we use to wait with excitement for our vacation photos to be developed and printed at the local photo lab, now it's all so easy as we can view the results on screen at the back of our digital camera immediately. It's then easy to decide if we want to change the exposure, the position of the camera, or whatever else, by viewing the image on screen immediately after taking the picture deciding if a re-shoot is the best option, deleting the unwanted image just taken... In fact life couldn't be easier! But don't you miss the good old family album, recording events as they happened... Well there's no need to fret because you can still do exactly the same thing and have your digital lab print up what you need. Now here is the big advantage, apart from the saving in costs of buying, processing and printing all the images taken, when clearly many just don't make it. Any Images you don't like you just simply delete, saving only the better ones. This means when it comes getting the digital lab to print up your images of choice, there is a substantial saving to you.
122 Also consider the other options, for example keeping your family in the loop with up-dated images of your vacation and other special events via your email. This doesn't cost you a thing and your family and friends are grateful that you thought of them by supplying your latest vacation images for them to see. So in a way, not only can you maintain you traditional family album as you always did, you can store your latest images on your computer, perhaps later burning to disc to save hard drive space and above all keep you family and friends up to date as well. Now we all take this for granted... But occasionally you need some old Pro photographer like me to remind you that it wasn't always that easy! Next time you take a digital photo, think on what I've just reminded you of and really use these options to the full... For more Photo http://photorog.blogspot.com/ Tip's check out Roger's blog,

Secret Tip Number 2 In Digital Photography
123 Last week we discussed light as being the first secret to successful digital photography. This week we are going to examine the second secret to digital photography, and that my friend, is composition. Composition in your digital photography, if you like, is really your shapes, lines and forms all working together in your digital photo. Its not just these working together, its really all your shapes working together, complimenting each other to create a visual balance. So what do I mean by this? Example: A seascape photo. The reason why this digital photo works is because the lines of the clouds work to compliment the horizon line of the ocean. The direction of the clouds creates lines and forms. These forms in this digital photo work together to create a balance of symmetrical shape with the line of the ocean. See how these things work to create symmetrical composition? The key also is to keep your composition simple. Don't overcrowd your digital photo with unnecessary and irrelevant forms and images that have nothing to do with the story you are creating with your digital photography. Its this simplicity of lines and forms that create good composition. You will notice that the best photos are simple. There is no clutter, no distraction, no irrelevance and everything works together. The outer parts of the digital photo all lead to a single point of focus- and this is GOOD photography. So whenever you embark on digital photography just remember; make sure the light is evenly spread across your digital photo and make sure you keep the lines and forms really simple. The less clutter the better. I took this digital photo to show you that you can create good photos using a basic digital camera if you apply the 3 secrets to digital photography. It’s just a simple one, but just because you don't ideally have the latest dlsr camera doesn't mean your shots can't turn out. Can you guess what camera I used to take this digital photo?

Once he got around the far side of the lake he noticed what appeared to be a young lad riding a monkey-bike (small motorbike) up an off-cut of the lake which was a public footpath.
he was still taking pictures happily at this point. at this point he dived to the . He was wrong as the next thing he knew two of the lads on motorbikes appeared from beyond the trees. and of course his DSLR digital camera. While walking he assessed the situation and realised he had his wallet on him. "mister" he froze and turned around. a couple of lenses. My friend quickly thought and pointed away from his own direction stating that they would be better off at the golf club end. he thought as there were parts there that a human could only just get passed it would be impossible for a motorbike. but each time getting nearer. But just before he gave a sigh of relief he heard them trying to get around the woodland side of the lake. or rather his camera. Then from no-where he heard the roar of a much bigger off-road motorbike screaming up behind him. He heard the motorbike stop just a few feet behind him. he stood his ground and the lad turned the bike around and revved off digging up all the grass with wheel spin as he sped away. his mobile phone. but it seemed distant or at least unfocussed on him. By the time he had reached the back end of the lake and onto the open grass field he felt the danger had passed as he could still hear them.127 As my friend continued around the far side which was like a grass path with bushes and a high fence on one side with no exit and the lake itself on the other. while he thought he could perhaps tackle one of these youths alone he would not stand much chance against three. There was nowhere to go except forward and that meant that once he had cleared the back edge of the lake there would be an open grass field to cross before reaching the safety of the main road. then a voice called out. there was a rather unsavoury looking lad on this bike covered in mud and tattoos staring straight at him. The lad said "where do these paths lead and which one can we use our bikes on" it was at this point that my friend spotted two other lads further down the path behind this lad as well as the young kid on the monkey-bike.

Don't stand right in front of your subject. Don't include elements that you don't want to remember in twenty years time.

more intimate groups. 1. Be creative and go beyond tall people at the back and short to the front. You want to remember the event and people. Get in close This ties in with our first point. Know where you want each person to stand in relation to the whole group. Of course there are times where you are limited as to where you can shoot. for example. Group others around the most important person in the image. Rather have two groups of three of four than a large group of eight. Don't just let people stand where they want to.

If the group is large try to get them to get their heads closer together.
Fewer people but more detail. People feed off the energy of others and a smile or a laugh can be contagious. Taking multiple shots makes it easier to get the shot as there might only be fractions of a second when everyone is looking at the camera and not blinking. Be happy even if you don't feel like it.
