Okay, let’s get started and grab your SLR 35mm camera. It can be film or digital it really doesn’t matter. They both work the same way in principle and design. So, assuming that all who is interested in gaining more clarity and understanding the functionality of basic camera elements. Will find this class just right for you. Now with that said, I can begin this lesson by providing some basic information on how to take great pictures.
Okay. Class is session! So, grab your camera and embrace it, look it over and become familiar with it as if were your best friend which will take out to every job. I know, it sounds romantic, but think about it for a second, this kind of relationship needs to be true. Because, you and your camera will work as partners when creating those great pictures.
Question for you. Who’s the brains of this partnership? Yeah, I got you thinking again, uh. You’re actually right! The partnership is equal. So, back to my point, it’s the photographer who set up the camera by determining the proper settings before aiming,focusing and pushing the shutter button. Moreover, the photographer must have a keen knowledge of what all numerical camera settings mean. And, it’s your camera which has all the build in technical capabilities for you to utilizes in capturing beautiful photographs you seek.
Believe me, when photographing in the Manual Mode these camera setting holds truth to reality, as oppose to the Auto Program Mode. My personal view regarding which Camera Mode is the best to learn photography is that the Manuel Mode Setting allows you as a student to think as a knowledgeable photographer. And, in this case, the photographer will not have to depend of the camera’s automation mode to help them out.
Hopefully, you get what I am saying… Because, if you chose to photograph in Auto Program Modes, then I feel that you’re really not learning how to become a bonafide photographer. Again, I hope that you share my opinion on this issue.
Mine O’ mine. Look, where have the time gone? Well, I feel that we got off to a great start today with our first lesson, at least in matter understanding what the course will be about. But hold on, the class is not dismiss yet, because I do have a little homework for you. Don’t worry you can handle it. Your assignment is to look over your camera and examine all the setting buttons, such as, the Shutter Speed, ISO, and Aperture which are three moveable functions that make a huge difference towards getting great pictures. So, assignment is simple, but imperative. Alright, I’ll see you soon!
