Using Your First DSLR
As an amateur photographer looking to take the first step towards more professional compositions, one of the first things we are probably going to do is buy a DSLR, which can be a pretty overwhelming investment if you do not know how to use it. To start, here are some simple tips to reference if you are a beginner:
Shutter Speed – Many DSLRs on the market have only three dials in them for shutter, ISO and aperture. To begin with, they must be the first 3 with which to play. Everything you need to know about shutter speed as an absolute beginner, is described in the report as 1/10 (slower) or 1 / 160th (faster). The faster the shutter speed is, the slower the motion blur that you begin to see in your shots. For a list of cheating fast shutter speed, see the link.
Lighting – Before learning how to change the camera settings, it is important that you understand that lighting is likely to change the settings in one way or another. If you are a NYIP student, send your resume if you need a review; Is widely covered in unit 3 of its course.
ISO-This parameter is the one that adds more depending on the light with which you work. The more ISO, the more it will catch the light. However, most photographers avoid the start of ISO is too high to avoid so-called noise (grainy). Most of you do not want to increase your ISO too much unless you down.
Opening the light aperture allowing you to tap your camera sensor. This is basically a small hole in your camera you can open or close to increase the depth of field (which is how much scene you want to develop). If you’ve ever heard of something called f numbers, that’s what you’re talking about. To let in more light, it has a small number f as f / 2. More f-off number, less still has light.
