CAMERA BETTER BEST • Manual exposure • Image Stabilization • dSLR • 17-50mm lens • External flash

EXPOSURE Most important variables • Aperture • Shutter speed • ISO

APERTURE • Often is the most important variable • Significantly impacts depth of field • Displayed in “f stops”

APERTURE Small Large • f/16 • Less light • Slower shutter • More DOF • f/2.8 • More light • Faster shutter • Less DOF

SHUTTER SPEED Choose a slow speed to emphasize movement, or a fast one to “freeze” the scene

ISO • Determines the sensitivity (to light) of the sensor • High ISO allows for a faster shutter, but can greatly reduce quality

DEPTH OF FIELD DOF is the area of the image that is in focus. It is useful for emphasizing and/or isolating subjects.

DEPTH OF FIELD Use a large aperture for less depth of field, more background blur

DEPTH OF FIELD Use a small aperture for more depth of field, less background blur

FOCAL LENGTH 17mm 50mm

ACCESSORIES • External flash • Tripod • Software (Photoshop/Lightroom/Elements)
