"I love photography. Whether I’m good or not is not really the point. I just love it as an activity, a discipline, a hobby. I love that there’s always—always something new to learn, something new to try…"
I must say though that Ree does hell of a better photography than I do. Of course she has more money and time to invest in this hobby than I do but that is not an excuse for me stop myself from dreaming that someday I will get to be as good as she is at it. I bought my first micro 4/3 digital SLR back in December and though I lack some major important lenses to take better shots of certain things, I am slowly learning the basics of properly using a digital SLR.
Below are a few links I go to for reference to learn the basics. I just love how Ree explains things clearly as if I am a four year old.
In a nutshell:
- *Photography is all about light, and properly exposing an image has to do with letting just the right amount of light into the camera.
- The wider the aperture opening, the more light will enter the camera.
- The smaller the aperture opening, the less light will enter the camera.
- The slower the shutter speed, the more light will enter the camera.
- The faster the shutter speed, the less light will enter the camera.
- The higher the ISO setting, the more sensitive your camera will be to light.
- The lower the ISO setting, the less sensitive your camera will be to light.
