  10. 10. PHOTOGRAPHY IS WRITING WITH LIGHT No light means no picture. Photography needs light to be able to reflect something. There are different sorts of light, defining the look and feel and mood of a picture. When no natural light is available, we can add light to the subject. For example: add lamps, or bring in flashlightThursday 2 June 2011

  25. 25. 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
  26. 26. 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

  29. 29. 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

  32. 32. ISO. Of film sensitivity. The higher the ISO, the more you can make pictures in darker circumstances. High ISO add more ‘noise’ or ‘grain’. Lower ISO-have less noise and result in a sharper images. Generally: always choose the lowest ISO possible.Thursday 2 June 2011
  33. 33. LENS. Or objective. There are wide angle, standard or tele lenses. Zoom lenses often combine some of them Wide angle: everything belows 35mm Tele: alles beyond 50mm Standard: 35 or 50mm Generally: Wide angle is perfect for landscapes. 85mm is perfect for portraits.Thursday 2 June 2011
