I've seen so many of my friends buying the latest DSLRs and being frustrated when the photos don't turn out as they expected. One even claimed his cell phone takes better photos than the expensive DSLR.
One of the basic photography principles to master is the Exposure Triangle. It explains how three basic properties (ISO, Aperture, and Shutter Speed) interacts with each other to control your exposure.
Helen wrote an in-depth guide filled with exercises and examples on this topic right here: Guide to Exposure Triangle
Give this a read if you are:
- Frustrated by shaky photos
- Frustrated by the low-light performance of your camera
- Not able to isolate the subject by blurring the background.
- Not able to get the right exposure in your photos
This one is long! So you may want to sit down with a cup of coffee!
