Keep repeating, Nick. This week the f-stops, shutter speeds, and ISO’s made more sense than last week. I also am now understanding how to properly use the light meter. I am looking forward to my “homework”!
Nick, I always find out something new with your lessons. Today’s ah hah was the thing about how objects in the background look like they are closer to the ones in the foreground when you use a longer lens.
Almost all kinds of photography—portraiture, landscapes, action, still lifes—benefit from a photographer who is in control of their tools and not the other way around. Virtually all professional photographers shoot manually. There’s a reason for it—the pictures are better.
