Are you frustrated with your camera?

by Ram Ya September. 01, 2018 2497 views

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!

Please Share & Comment

Ladies and gentlemen, as always, Helen put a lot of effort into creating these masterpieces. Please do her and PB a huge favor and share this article in your social and online groups.

If you have any questions about Exposure Triangle, please comment in the article. We would be happy to answer (compliments welcome too!)
