I have decided to dedicate a section of my photography website to share knowledge and ideas about photography.
I find photography as a wonderful artistic world, the camera allows you to express your deepest feelings.
Creativity is what emerges when looking at a picture. The way it is exposed, composed and finished indicates the intent of the photographer, the message she/he wants to transmit. It is also a very eclectic field of art. Form nature to landscapes, from wildlife to still life each of us can find that subject that talks to our souls.
Photography can be also very scientific. Our camera is a very advanced piece of technology. It has very sophisticated processors evolving pretty fast. New cameras are equipped with softwares that can allow anyone to use them; the camera decides all the setting for you.
Although that is a pretty interesting concept that has contributed to the sharp increase in photography production, leaving alone the “smart phone-graphy phenomenon”, it is also true that manually setting your camera is what you really want to do when out shooting. You want to decide how a picture should be taken, not your camera.
In order to be the master, to take control of this beautiful piece of technology, all of us need to grasp the key fundamentals of photography. Exposure and composition are certainly the key topics. The nice part is that once you start digging you want to know more, and any single piece of info can be further exploded into many other subjects.
Well, I would like to share with you, in the simplest possible language, what I have learnt about photography. I would also like to share creative ideas and techniques to improve skills and results. I simply would like that each of us, interested in this field, can get the basic info quickly so that there is more time to research locations and focus on shooting.
As such I will post articles and files that will serve as a quick reference guide for growing our familiarity with our camera.
