On the Previous Post
The Previous Post is a re-post of one of my original articles I have re-titled "Exposures, ISO's, Apertures and Shutter Speeds, Oh My!" I have re-written the article and changed some of the Diagrams and I have now labelled it Version 2.0. Please re-read it as some of the changes are significant and you may yet learn something new.
The intent for this article is to teach the basics of photography to beginners before they go on with the actual learning of photography. I have re-worked the article to make it simpler and easier to understand. The reasoning is that most beginners do not know or understand the "basics" nor do they understand photography terminology. Telling a beginner to simply change the "shutter speed" when they do not know what it is or even understand the concept does not help them in any way.
This Tuesday I will be teaching an "Introduction to Digital Photography" course and this article will act as a Photography Primer and the first evenings homework for the class. All the subjects, Exposure, ISO, Aperture and Shutter Speed will all be covered in more detail as will subjects like Depth-Of-Field, Motion Blur and all other photography basics.
The article is designed as an article for print and so I do have it available in a PDF format. If you would like a copy for personal use please just ask and I will send one along. I will be making a few more small changes but it is basically finished.
I will from here on be posting more classroom articles to continue the whole learning the Art of Photography. I hope that you will learn from these articles and if you have any ideas or thoughts on this article or future ones, please let me know.
