Text 27 Jun The 3 things you’ll ever need to know about photography

One thing I’m sick of is people making out that photography is so technical, that it is an art form, that you have to be a master of light before you can even think about taking a photos shits me, get over your self.

Photography is taking photos of something that you like, if your at a party and having a good time, take a photo to remember that, if you see a cool looking sign take a photo to show others, you see a cute girl walking down the street take a photo of her and get slapped, taking photos is meant to be fun.

And then there are the settings junkies, who gives a fuck if you shoot on manual or auto, if you get the shot you get the shot and don’t get me started on film vs digital, I just don’t care.

So what are the 3 thing you’ll ever need to know? ISO, F-Stop and Shutter Speed, that’s it. What do you do with them? You control the amount of light the camera lets in.

ISO, if you shooting on a bright sunny day you’ll have the ISO down around 100-400, if your in the shade or shadows you might need to bump it up over 400 to 800 and if your in a dark room take it up as far as it goes.

F-Stop, is a hole in your lens that lets in light, the smaller the number the bigger the hole the more light, F2 big hole lots of light, F22 small hole less light. With the F-Stop you can also control the DOF (depth of field) that’s when you blur out the back ground.

Shutter Speed, this is that thing that makes the clicking sound when you take a shot and this works on time, the longer it is open the more light comes in and yes you guest it, the faster the shutter speed the less light comes in.

How to work out what to have them all set to, that’s easy, take a shoot and see what it looks like on the screen on the back of the camera. What I like to do is set my F-Stop to around F1.2 to F4 depending on how much of the shot I want in focus, if I’m doing street photography I sometimes have the F-Stop higher just so I can have more of the shot in focus to make sure I can get the person walking past. The shutter speed I keep around 250, give or take a bit and then I play around with the ISO to make the shot brighter or darker, sometimes I guess it right sometimes I’m wrong and that’s why I always take a few test shots to make sure its right.

What can you do to learn, go out and start taking photos, look at the screen on the back and see if you like the exposure, slowly you’ll pick things up as you go and change them around and if people start making fun of you for chimping (looking at the screen on the back of the camera) tell them I said they can suck my…
