Understanding Exposure

To expose a photograph correctly means – in simple terms – to create an image that looks how you want it to look, either on screen or in print. Get your exposure completely wrong and your photograph won’t work at all – it will either be too light, or too dark. Get it right, and you’ll create a beautiful image with a finish you can be proud of. Click here to read the full guide.

Understanding Camera Settings

Having a good understanding of the camera settings is essential to have full control over the photos you take. Whether you are a beginner or an advanced amateur, you should know what each camera setting does and when it should be used, under what circumstances. Click here to read the full guide.

It’s important to understand exposure and your camera settings, but without a good understanding composition, it’s difficult to take a truly beautiful photo – whether that be of your children or family pet, or a scenic view you’ve stumbled upon.
