” “ “Rules are meant to be broken.” “You can break a rule without knowing the rule.” T RUE OR F ALSE “You should only break a rule intentionally—not ignorantly.” “When it comes to the art of Photography, there are rules.”
“Practice the mechanics of making photographs until it becomes second nature.” – F RED P ICKER

F OCUSING T IPS Focus on the eyes NOTE : when the eyes are at different distances from the camera, focus on the closest eye. Also, setting your camera’s Auto Focus point to the “center point” will help in correct focusing.
A PERTURE T IPS Know in which scenarios to use which aperture. For portraiture work, a shallow depth of field will ‘pop’ the subject out of the background (i.e. f/2.8). For landscapes and macro shots, ‘stopping down’ (i.e. f/8) will create better results—a broader depth of field. More will be in focus.
A PERTURE Subject W HY ‘ STOP DOWN ’ FOR MACRO SHOTS
S HUTTER T IPS Know in which circumstances to use which shutter speeds. For intentional blurred motion, i.e. waterfall, panning, etc., a longer shutter speed is appropriate. NOTE : The camera must be stable—on a tripod—in order to blur only the moving subject (motion blur) not the entire image (camera-shake blur). In order to freeze fast movements, i.e. humming bird, children, sports, etc., the shutter speed must be fast. NOTE : This would underexpose the image unless you boost the ISO sensitivity or widen the aperture.
“Young people who are learning digital skills discover that the real challenge is coming up with an image that resonates, first of all, with your self and hopefully, with an audience. They can learn all these new techniques and think that they’re easier to use, but creating great images isn’t about the tools.” – J ERRY U ELSMANN
