I stumbled across this video a few days ago, it’s definitely a must watch for those who have just recently bought their SLRs or have never been able to switch modes from manual. Really irritates me when I see people shooting on auto mode and their inbuilt flash pops up in broad daylight – why?! Personally, I’ve never been able to understand all the terminology nor had any photography lessons to understand all of them, it’s all about practice. LDN.365 was my practice field – taking a camera around with me for 365 days and playing around with all the settings was my lesson. Photographer Matthew Gore has taken it upon himself to create this simple video explaining “The Three Basics of Photography” which all comes down to how your SLR is able to manipulate light into getting the best photograph.
