How The Cameras Work
We are actually trying to give you an idea about what camera settings works best in a particular condition. The main factor that can make or break your picture is Exposure which depends on three sub factors – Aperture, shutter speed, and ISO. An additional factor that affects your pictures is white balance. Taking care of these always results in magical pictures. You don’t have to go for high end cameras. Your current camera has everything that you require for a better photography.
If you own a camera, you are already familiar with the term ‘Aperture’. Some cameras have wide apertures and some have smaller one. The best way to understand the functioning of the aperture is to know that the wide aperture cameras are great for close ups and portrait shots. While a narrow aperture is useful in taking some brilliant group shots and do justice to the landscape shots.
ISO is a term used for the sensitivity of your camera toward the light available in a given condition. A low ISO is less sensitive to the light than a higher ISO. We just can’t tell a certain number of ISO to be the best as the different ISO numbers work best in different lighting conditions.
It’s simply the amount of time the camera shutter remains open. The faster shutter speed helps in locking even a moving object perfectly. While a slow shutter speed makes most of your shots blurry and faded.
The white balance tries to balance your picture’s temperature. It adds opposite color to the over exposed areas in an attempt to bring it back to look normal. A white balance gives your images a natural appearance and make them look closer to the real object.
