  • 4/TechniqueThursday 2 June 2011
  • Technique IS KEY But doesn’t make a good picture. It is important to use the right technique: the right kind of film, the right light, the right choice of objective, with an aparture or speed that fits the subject. For one purpose: make the picture what it can be. But only technique doesn’’t make a good picture. It all starts with seeing the subject and framing it.Thursday 2 June 2011
  • Aperture. Or diaphragm. It defines the depth of field of an image. Defines if an image is sharp from front to infinity, or only a part of it. Generally: low value means low depth of field (2.8 or 4) High value means a high depth of field (16 or 22)Thursday 2 June 2011

  • SHUTTERSPEED. How long the shutter is open. Fast ‘click’ or long ‘cliiiiiick’ Makes a picture ‘moved’ (slow shutterspeed) or ‘frozen’. Generally: through speed you can add dynamics, by moving elements. 1/60 is the standard value: it is fast enough so you don’t move yourself. For everything below it is advisable to use a tripod.Thursday 2 June 2011
