Photography basics

When it comes to taking a picture everything matters: Up to how to hold the camera. There is a direct, and very strong, relationship between the way the photographer takes the camera and the optical quality of the final photograph.

The second thing is the focus because a poorly focused photograph usually goes straight to the bin.

After verifying such important details it is vital to learn what is the depth of field, among other basic concepts of photography that we explain briefly below.

The depth of Field: It is basically the area of the image that is sharp or focused, in contrast to other areas of less focus.

It is necessary to say that, in any frame, the objective can focus only on one point, not several. That yes, that focused point can be broad or reduced, according to what the photographer wants we want and as the capacities of his objective allow him.

The area of the image that will appear sharp and well focused will determine the depth of field.

Hyperfocal distance of a photographic lens: It is the minimum distance that can be focused so that total sharpness is obtained.


White Balance: In electronic image processing and photography, "white balance", "color balance", or "white balance" is a software setting that achieves correct color reproduction without displaying color dominant, which are especially noticeable in neutral tones (white and different shades of gray), regardless of the type of light that illuminates the scene. It can be performed continuously, automatically or manually.


ISO: ISO sensitivity is, along with aperture and exposure time, one of the three elements that define exposure in your photos, which is known as the famous triangle of exposure.

ISO sensitivity marks the amount of light our camera needs to take a picture. This concept, which is drawn from conventional photography, remains in digital photography, although its foundations are somewhat different. 


Image Stabilizers: It is the device in charge of reducing the vibrations in the capture of an image when in the take place unwanted movements take place ...


Measuring and Exposing: The domain of light is what will define you as a photographer and how to measure it is what will turn you into a master.

If the light in the scene is not correctly measured, the exposure will not be correct and therefore the quality of the picture will be affected by making all the techniques and tricks you have applied have been in vain.
