Easily Understand ISO and Light Sensitivity

Easily Understand ISO and Light Sensitivity

In the days of film cameras, ISO related to film speed. Film had a different number on it, based on how sensitive it was to light. In a digital camera, it serves the same function, but instead refers to how sensitive your camera’s sensor will be to light.

Cameras have come a long way in recent years, and sensors are better at handling dark situations than they’ve ever been. But it’s still very important to understand how ISO works, and what effect changing it will have on your images.

What Is Exposure Anyway?

What Is Exposure Anyway?

Have you ever tried to explain a simple idea to a friend only to find yourself at a loss for words?

Exposure is a concept that does that to a lot of people.

From a technical standpoint, exposure is the amount of light your camera’s sensor captures when an image is taken.

The question of what is correct exposure, though, is less technical, and more of the opinion of the photographer. It’s based on the type of image you want to create.

Which Camera and Lens Should I Buy?

Which Camera and Lens Should I Buy?

“Which camera and lens should I buy?” I get asked this question ALL THE TIME…

I usually tell them it’s not about the camera or lens. It’s about understanding how to use the equipment, taking manual control, and capturing the images as you intended.

It’s not the camera that makes a great photo. It’s the mind of the photographer.

I guarantee you that a seasoned photographer could be given any consumer-level DSLR camera that was made in the last 5 years, and we would take photos that could easily be featured on the cover of a magazine or on a billboard ad. Regardless of which camera was in our hands.
