Photography 101 – Exposure & Stops


Photography 101, a series of articles at Digital Photography School, is back with it’s fourth installment: Exposure & Stops. As always, Neil Creek shares with us his expertise and wisdom about photography skills and technique. From the article:

In this series, we cover all the basics of camera design and use. We talk about the ‘exposure triangle’: shutter speed, aperture and ISO. We talk about focus, depth of field and sharpness, as well as how lenses work, what focal lengths mean and how they put light on the sensor. We also look at the camera itself, how it works, what all the options mean and how they affect your photos.

It’s a great series that speaks in simple terms and serves as a great starting point, or a refresher, for any photographer, regardless of their skill level. It’s a series I would recommend to anyone.
