  • The center of the frame is the weakest place -- it's static, dull, and gives no value to the context. The more you move the subject away from the center, the more relevance you give to the context

    32. 32. A P E RT U R E• A larger lens opening (f1.4 - 3.5) offers the following advantages: – shoot more often with just natural lighting  reduce harsh shadows and red-eye caused by flash. – Allows more light to pass through, the camera will be able to choose a slightly higher shutter speed  helps to reduce motion blur. – Helps to reduce “depth-of-field” (for effect). 2012 © Abhay Raj www.facebook.com/abhay.raj.photography 32

    35. 35. SHUTTER SPEED• To capture blur-free "action" photographs (e.g. Sports), you need to make sure the camera is using a high shutter speed, e.g.1/125th of a second or more.• Less light gets through to the image as shutter speed is increased, thus difficult to use higher shutter speeds in lower light situations.• Alternatives: Allow more light to pass through the lens (larger aperture setting), the other is to increase the ISO 2012 © Abhay Raj www.facebook.com/abhay.raj.photography 35
    36. 36. SHUTTER SPEEDAbsolutely sharp images are not always the best. They can look static and dull. At slow shutter speeds the camera blurs the image of moving objects, and can create a more convincing image of movement. 2012 © Abhay Raj www.facebook.com/abhay.raj.photography 36
