A unique guide to creative shutter speed techniques, illustrated with striking full-color examples Along with available light and aperture, shutter speed is one of the variables that determine exposure–the amount of light that reaches the camera's sensor. Set on automatic modes, cameras typically attempt to reduce or eliminate blur in a picture. But by manipulating shutter speed creatively, photographers can achieve a range of striking motion blur or stop-action effects. Using an array of inspiring photographs depicting people, wildlife, and landscapes, Creative Power of Shutter Speed explains how to "read" the light and movement in a potential photograph and identify the best shutter speed for the desired effect.

There are two types of new photographers: those satisfied with their low-cost point-and-shoot cameras, and those more enthusiastic photographers who recognize the limitations of low-cost equipment and want to improve their pictures. No longer satisfied with simple snapshots, the enthusiast moves up to a more complex digital camera-one with interchangeable lenses and manual controls-to satisfy their artistic urge. Assuming little to no knowledge of photographic terms, techniques, or technology, Beyond Point-And-Shoot is intended to help smooth the transition from photographic newbie to "real" photographer who is experienced, in-control, and passionate about their craft. Author Darrell Young explores various types of interchangeable-lens cameras, focusing on those with larger imaging sensors, such as digital single-lens reflex (DSLR) cameras. Learn how to get the most out of your camera's automatic and semi-automatic exposure modes, as well as how to move beyond those modes and take full, manual control of your camera. Watch your photography improve as you discover how to apply important photographic principles, such as depth of field, white balance, and metering. With this newfound knowledge you'll move beyond point-and-shoot and begin taking truly great photographs. Other topics include: Camera types Lenses Aperture, shutter speed, and ISO Metering and shooting controls Lens focal lengths and angles of view The histogram Color spaces Sensors Filters Image file formats Managing digital noise And much more!

DSLR Photography The Beginners Guide to Understanding Aperture, Shutter Speed, ISO and Exposure People bought more than 13 million interchangeable lens cameras in 2015. A big majority of those were Digital Single Lens Reflex cameras or "DSLRs." These versatile devices provide their owners with powerful picture making tools that can be adapted to meet their individual photographic needs and interests. Thanks to breakthroughs in digital technology, cameras are far easier to use than they were 30 years ago and far more capable as well. Features that were once only found in very expensive top of the line cameras can now be found in entry level DSLR Cameras. While many have fallen for the siren song of their smart phone cameras, people who want to produce memorable photographs have long realized that bigger really is better. As good as smart phone cameras have gotten, they still aren't capable of matching the digital photography a good DSLR can deliver. Interchangeable lens cameras also provide more problem solving options. A smart phone camera may be able to make decent images under perfect conditions, but when those conditions deteriorate, look out. DSLRs can capture images of things that smart phone cameras just can't. They also offer much better image quality than do smart phone cameras with their much, much smaller imaging sensors. This book provides an introduction to using DSLR cameras and explaining the basics of creating good exposures. If you've just purchased your first DSLR, or if you've been using one a while and want to improve your photography, you'll find the information in this book helpful. It's geared to those who don't have a lot of experience with photography and written in clear, plain English any beginner can follow. Among other things, you'll learn about the controls you'll use to control the amount of light entering the camera, how long the camera permits light to enter, and to adjust the camera's sensitivity to light. Once you've learned these controls and how to use them, it's all brought together for you in the chapter on how to properly expose an image. This is followed by how you can make better photographs by using the information in this book. Another important topic covered in this book is the importance of light and how to use it. While it's just the basics, it will give you enough of an introduction to really have a sense of why photographers go on and on about needing the "right" light. It includes a professional photographer's suggestions for how to set up your camera for a variety of shooting preferences and what you should prioritize depending on the subject you're photographing. You'll also learn the basics of effective photographic composition, so you can create better images from both a technical and an artistic perspective. And while it's easy for any discussion of photography to include assertions to invest in lots of expensive gear, you'll find lots of examples of ways you can improve your photos with inexpensive accessories, some of which you may already have.
