Camera Settings & Lingo
It can be so confusing in the beginning. All the terms, settings and things you might have never heard before.
It’s important to know the basics of your camera settings, after all you should be in charge of the camera, not the auto mode.
Below I’ve posted some videos from my favorite online resources for learning about the settings, and terms.. This page is always evaluating, so I’ll be adding things as I discover them.
Know The Lingo
Depth of field
An f-stop is a camera setting that specifies the aperture of the lens on a particular photograph. The letter “f” stands for focal length of the lens.
The Exposure Triangle comprises aperture, shutter speed, and ISO. These three camera and lens controls work together to regulate the amount of light that makes it to the light-sensitive surface (aperture and shutter speed) and the sensitivity of that surface (film or digital ISO).
