Thread: Photography 101

    Re: [Tutorial] Photography 101

    I've always been interested in photography, but I just need some money to get a good camera! I've considered myself pretty good with taking pics (and not just of myself ahaha).

    Not anything I'd class as professional, but my love of photography from my crappy camera sure! I'll PM some random stuff.

    Thanks for the info. What advice can you offer for shooting in low light? I hate using flash because of the shadows it gives off and the unnatural looking light, and it's often a juggling act between ugly grain, motion blur from long exposures, and glowy edges from using a wide open aperture. Would having a DSLR help to solve this?

    A DSLR would definitely help, because of the larger sensor size higher ISOs with less grain are attainable. Large apertures help too, but then you get lower depth of field. Shooting on a tripod is your best bet for clean, low ISO shots, with high depth of field. However it's not exactly useful when shooting parties, for example.

    It's always a compromise between ISO, depth of field and shutter speed. See how low you can hand hold a shot, learn your limits. As for a flash, well I avoid the on-board flash of my DSLR and only use it as a fill flash during the day or as a trigger for my flash unit when using it off-camera. Buying a dedicated flash unit is the best thing to do for flash photography, because then you can bounce your flash off walls and ceilings etc for indirect, nicer lighting.

    Great tutorial! I'm sure this will help a lot even with my not-so-great camera.
