Join Ben Long for an in-depth discussion in this video Where to go next, part of Photography Foundations: Exposure (part 1).
- At this point, you should understand…what shutter speed, aperture and ISO are.…And just as importantly, you should understand…the reciprocal relationship between them.…You should be comfortable with the idea…of balancing one of those parameters against another…to control image brightness and shutter speed.…When shooting, you should be developing the habit…of always half-pressing the shutter button…to meter and focus, and you are hopefully learning…to keep track of your shutter speed as you shoot,…so that you know when you're at risk of getting…blurry shots due to handheld camera shake.…
After being shown that your eye and your camera…see the world very differently in terms of dynamic range,…you are possibly starting to understand that you…can use shadows and highlights in different ways…in your shooting.…That's the beginning of seeing photographically.…I've asked you to keep your camera in program mode,…but along the way you've seen how you can use…your program shift feature to cycle through…different shutter speed aperture combinations…
Note: This course is designed to work with any digital camera, but it is easier to follow along using a digital SLR or mirrorless camera.
