The Exposure Triangle Tutorial
Aim
So, you've got your spiffy new DSLR because you wanted to take your hobby to the next level. You've gone trigger happy and annoyed all your friends with that constant clicking noise and blinding light. You've taken some pretty decent shots in Auto Mode, but they don't always turn out the way you want them too. Your photos are sometimes too bright, too dark, blurry or (unintentionally) grainy.
This tutorial aims to help you to explore your camera's Manual Mode in order to improve the quality of your work and to give you much more control over the outcome.
The Exposure Triangle
The Exposure Triangle consists of three main points: ISO, Aperture and Shutter Speed. Understanding these three things is key to becoming a better photographer and getting the result you want. In my
Understanding Your Exposure Meter
Aim
The goal of this tutorial is to help you to get a better understanding about exposure and teach you how to evenly expose your photos. This is a follow-up of my last tutorial: The Exposure Triangle.
Introduction

When I first started out with photography, I only shot in auto mode. I was experimenting away and manual mode seemed too complicated and time-consuming for me at the beginning. I managed to take a few lovely shots, but many came out completely different from what I initially saw through my viewfinder.
Here's a photo I took in 2008:

Absolutely beautiful scenery, but far too dark in the foreground. This was not what I was going for at all at the time and it was utterly frustrating seeing the perfect lighting through my viewfinder and then having something completel
Why I Now Always Shoot in Raw(Don't worry, pictures included ;))
Aim
The aim of this tutorial is to explain why shooting in raw can be beneficial to you as a photographer and gives some basic information on how to process raw files. 


Introduction
I've been dabbling in photography for over seven years now and I'm ashamed to say that I didn't start shooting in raw until earlier this year. The reason? I only had a single 2GB memory card and JPG files took up a lot less space. A JPG file takes up roughly around 7MB, while a RAW file of the same photo would be around 23MB. That's a huge difference, but it's really worth it! Today, a 16GB SD Memory card costs around ten bucks, so I bought two and now I always shoot in raw.
What is camera raw?
A raw file is basically what the name describes: a raw image file. Raw, meaning unprocessed, unblemished. When you take a photo, your camera saves a lot of information about the white balance, exposur

Working Professionally With Amateur ModelsArt in the Professions
In portrait photography, one of the key ingredients for a successful shoot is knowing how to work like a pro with your models. This article explains a handful of ways in which you can do just that and it is meant to give some advice to persons seeking to get into (or learn more about) portrait photography. Since my experience comes from working with people who aren't professional models, the focus here will be on photographing people who have no experience or maybe just a little bit of experience with being in front of the camera. Possible scenarios are: casual portrait sessions, wedding shoots, family shoots etc.
Before the Shoot
Understand What They're Looking For
It's important to communicate with your client about what they are looking to get out of their session with you. Especially if it's a person who hasn't had much experience with being photographed, some direction is needed. Often a client will come and say something al

A Brief History of Classic Portrait PhotographyArt History
It is only natural to have a fascination with the human form, after all, we are human. Cave paintings depicted us as hunters; in the pyramids we are rulers, builders, slaves. In medieval times, during the renaissance, we are holy, we are important – sometimes anonymous. We are depicted as warriors, we are shown with our families and by ourselves. Through works of art over the centuries, we are able to see what we have been and what we could be. It is no wonder that the ways of capturing the human form have also evolved with us. Join me in taking a look at the origin of classic portrait photography to the place we are today.
Photography: The Beginning

Before we get into portrait photography specifically, let me talk about the origin of photography itself for a bit. The earliest lasting photograph was created by man named Joseph N

In order to prepare the feature, I will scour the "newest" section in photography to find the best submissions. The selections made are based on factors such as aesthetic appeal, creativity, concept, impact, and technique. Thanks to these skilled photographers for sharing their work with us! :love:

If you like the features, then keep an eye out for the next collection! :)

Welcome to my page :love:

I started getting into photography when I was 17, back when I still lived in my home town, Georgetown, Guyana. I've been a hobby photographer for years and started taking on commercial projects in 2013. I work full time, but still take on commercial work on the weekends.

I've actually dabbled in a bit of everything on my creative journey: poetry, drawing, painting, photomanipulation, webdesign, corporate design, vexel art, embroidery, among other things. I suppose you could call me the typical Jack of all trades in this regard. :B

Do feel free to leave a comment if you have any questions about photography, Deviant Art, or anything at all. Throw me a cookie and I will love you forever. :aww:
