EXPOSURE

I can understand learning about exposure, shutter speed, ISO, and other technical aspects of photography isn’t exactly as exciting as working on a fashion shoot with 20 different artists. But, bear with me, you want to know all this stuff.

This 2 images were shot using the same camera and the same lens. The only thing I changed was shooting with automatic settings (left) to manual (right). On automatic settings, your camera will try to evenly light your picture as good as possible. In this case everything became way too bright and I lost that beautiful sunset color. On the other hand, the image on the right is much darker and moodier, but that is “what I wanted.” You will often hear me day this in classes.

A professional photographer (or just any photographer who knows what their doing) will always know what kind of “mood” or “feeling” they’re shooting towards. When you shoot in automatic you will lose control over you final image! So, what is the first rule of becoming a professional photographer? You guessed it. Switch forever to manual! Have you ever wondered why your images always turned out somewhat random? When you are at a party and you hope for you image not to be blurred? This is what we will learn in the next class; shutter speed!
