Basic Photography by Majid Pandit

  1. 1. Basic Photography<br />By<br />Majid Pandit<br />majid.pandit@gmail.com <br />
  2. 2. The 6 Things To Know<br />
  3. 3. C . E . L . L .<br />
  4. 4. Principle 1<br />Un-clutter the picture. Zoom in.<br />Composition<br />A good photograph is a subject, a context, and nothing else. Remove any clutter that detracts from your message. <br />Get closer -- zoom in -- and crop as tightly as possible<br />
  5. 5. unless it’s a reflection<br />Principle 2<br />Put subject off-centre / Rule of thirds<br />Composition<br />The center of the frame is the weakest place -- it&apos;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<br />
  6. 6. Principle 3<br />Use of frames, lines & diagonals<br />Composition<br />Create impact by using frames and real or inferred lines that lead the viewer&apos;s eye into and around the picture<br />
  7. 7. Principle 4<br />Dramatic Perspective<br />Composition<br />Create impact by photographing your subjects from unexpected angles. <br />Imagine yourself as an electron spinning around the subject, which is the nucleus of an atom<br />
  8. 8. Exposure<br />
  9. 9. Aperture<br />General Rules and tips<br />
  10. 10. Aperture<br />Principle<br />Affect depth of field (range of distance in focus)<br />In a portrait, shallower dof will isolate your subject from distracting backgrounds<br />
  11. 11. General Rules and tips<br />Shutter speed<br />
  12. 12. Shutter speed<br />Principle<br />Freezing motion (achieve the desired effect)<br />Absolutely sharp images are not always the best. They can look static and dull. <br />At slow shutter speeds the camera blurs the image of moving objects, and can create a more convincing image of movement.<br />
  13. 13. General Rules and tips<br />ISO<br />
  14. 14. ISO Setting<br />Principle<br />Set the lowest setting possible to avoid noise <br />ISO measures the sensitivity of the image sensor. The lower the number the less sensitive your camera is to light and the finer the grain.<br />ISO<br />ISO 100<br />ISO 3200 <br />
  15. 15. Principle<br />Wide Angle (35mm) or Telephoto (70mm)<br />Lens<br />Wide-angle lenses allow more of a picture to be captured(need focal point) while telephoto lenses tighten the scene and isolate the subject (but affect the depth of field & increase camera shake)<br />
  16. 16. Principle 1 <br />Avoid using flash, even for night shots<br />Light<br />The indiscriminate blast of flash destroys the intimate mood of existing light<br />
  17. 17. Principle 2 <br />Side Lighting instead of front or overhead (noon-time) lighting<br />Light<br />
  18. 18. Light<br />Principle 3 <br />Use fill-in flash, for backlit situations or overhead sun.<br />Overhead sun creates dark eye sockets and unattractive shadows, which can be reduced by using a flash. Use fill-in flash also for situations where the subject is backlit (camera auto exposure will be confused)<br />
