Photography and camera – what do you know?

You bought yourself the latest DSLR camera, a new lens and a good bag.
You go out there, trying to capture a good moment or to take the ultimate picture.
Trying to catch the frame you always pictured.
But what do you really know about photography?

Do you how a camera works?
Do you know what happens when you click on the button to take the picture?
Maybe you just got the camera and your still not sure what ISO means, or still wondering what is aperture – “the F stop”?

Now – it’s not that I’m a great photographer, and to tell you the truth I’m not sure that if we sit together now I will be able to explain it all.
Actually the reason I’m writing this is because lately I realized I don’t know much about my camera besides the fact it stores the pictures I take by clicking a button, so I did a little bit of research and I have encountered some good posts made by other people that help getting the idea.

So here it goes:
This wonderful short guide by Sarah Erck Welle (whom I don’t personally know) explains pretty much every thing in a high level – starting with what DSLR means and runs you through different shooting modes.
This article by Martine Moore (also – I don’t personally know) is a little bit more into details and explains pretty much what is the process which is happening in your camera when you click that button – not entirely but you will get the idea.
You can read this good post about aperture and this great one with 10 camera terms which will help you get to know your camera (and cameras in general).
That’s about it, after you will go through these guides you can search for some more to get the idea.

Have a good one,

I have been living in China since early 2013 in the great Beijing. I try to travel as much as I can and try to understand the culture and the habits as much as possible. It's amazing how much can be learned about China, and about life, while living abroad in a totally different country than the one you grew up in. I love it! Catch up on my blog to try and understand along with me:) Adam.
