Understanding Light - and shooting right!


all cameras average the existing light. What that means is, just because you can see it, doesn't mean the camera can. The human eye is far more sophisticated than the most expensive camera money can buy. For example, you stand someone in front of a bright window, your eye can still tell who that person is, but the camera can not, at least, not without help.

Knowing your camera well will really help in your handling of the camera. The easy way is to handle a point and shoot camera, which has auto functions that are user friendly. All you have to do is to switch on the camera, point at your target and press the shutter. The exposure and focus are all automatically set for you, even the flash function. The camera will decide if your shot need a flash, if need be, it will fire it automatically.

These kind of 35mm cameras have the highest sales for years, simply because point and shoot cameras are easy to use, portable and it's affordable as well. Majority of the photos were amazingly sharp and well-exposed and with little effort spend by the photographer.

As compared to point and shoot cameras, digital cameras are better for consumers who need to upload their images into their computer. However, they were too expensive when it was first launched. It costs about a thousand dollars to buy a digital camera that has the features and quality of a three hundred dollars point and shoot camera.

Knowing your camera well is an important factor. You must be thinking that serious photographers do not like to use point and shoot cameras. In actual fact, they do bring a point and shoot camera with them whenever they go traveling, because like us, they like to play tourists. However, they use their precious serious cameras when they are taking proper photography. The reason is because they like to be in control. Amateurs use point and shoot cameras for their simple and auto functions, plus their portability as well. Serious photographers are different. They go into detail when it comes to photography, like the settings of the camera. For example, shutter speed, aperture, focusing, etc.

The settings of the camera play an important part on how the picture will look like. These photographers like to be in control of these settings and be able to change them wherever they think will make the picture look better.

The answer to whether your camera will make a difference is yes and no. A fancy camera will not make your photos look better automatically. But being knowledgeable with better cameras will make your photos look better. Of course simple cameras do not have all the sophisticated functions, and when you are all eager to take a good photograph, you will start looking for all these functions. Most importantly, you have to develop a good photographic eye, knowing your camera well, then you can take good pictures no matter what camera you use.
