Are You Interested In Taking Up Photography, But Feel Overwhelmed By All The Technical Jargon?

Are you interested in taking up photography, but feel overwhelmed by all the technical jargon? Never fear! This photography basics blog post will guide you through the basics of photography, helping you to understand the key concepts and terms.
We will start by explaining the three key elements of a photograph: aperture, shutter speed, and ISO. We will then move on to discussing composition, light, and depth of field. By the end of this blog post, you will have a strong foundation on which to start your photography journey!
The aperture is the opening in the lens through which light enters the camera. It is measured in f-stops, with a lower f-stop number indicating a wider aperture. The aperture controls the amount of light that enters the camera, as well as the depth of field.
Shutter Speed:
Shutter speed is the amount of time that the shutter is open, exposing the sensor to light. It is measured in seconds or fractions of a second. A faster shutter speed will result in a shorter exposure time, and will freeze fast-moving subjects. A slower shutter speed will result in a longer exposure time, and can be used to create blur effects.
ISO is a measure of the sensor’s sensitivity to light. A higher ISO setting will result in a brighter image, but may also introduce noise into the image. A lower ISO setting will result in a darker image, but will be less likely to introduces noise.
Composition is the arrangement of elements in a photograph. There are a few key compositional techniques that can help to make your photographs more interesting, such as the rule of thirds and leading lines.
Light is the main ingredient of a photograph, and can have a huge impact on the final image. The quality of light can range from hard and harsh to soft and diffused, and can be affected by the time of day, the weather, and your environment.
Depth of Field:
Depth of field is the distance between the nearest and furthest objects in a scene that appear acceptably sharp in the image. A shallow depth of field will result in a blurry background, while a deep depth of field will keep both the foreground and background in focus.
We hope that this blog post has helped to demystify some of the basics of photography for you! If you have any questions, please feel free to leave a comment below.
