Does nikon d5100 has internal light meter?

binarygraphite says:

But your question is a little vague so I’m ultimately not too sure how to answer it, but feel free to ask further or provide context and I’ll be glad to help further.

binarygraphite says:

You might not have to depending on what mode the camera is in. If you’re in aperture priority where you set the aperture, then the camera will automatically set the shutter speed. If you’re in manual mode then there are a few different methods. One is that you could use a light meter (if you have one) to take a reading and the device would tell you what to use. Trial and error is another method; just take some test shots at various settings and see which one looks correct (check histogram)…

IstoryangPagibig says:

Say you’re shooting in f/8, how would you choose the shutter speed?

binarygraphite says:

Thank you very kindly for your comment! It’s great to hear you’re finding my vids and blog useful! Hopefully more to come soon!

The best photography blog in the world. Thank you for explaining so well and so clear in a very simple language. Your videos are amazing. I have learned so much from them. I hope you also review cameras as well. Your pictures are also fantastic. i am a huge fan. Thank you so much.

binarygraphite says:

Thanks! 🙂

InsideMyShoei says:

Anybody else notice Tyler Durden come into view at ~3:31? Great videos by the way.

binarygraphite says:

You’re very welcome! It’s a beautiful area; very calming and relaxing too.

IndrekValdek says:

I’d really love to take down there some photos – with mountains and lakes and so on. Purely amazing. Thank again for your video, mr Imre.

… 2) Google “hyperfocal distance” and study it. The DOF chart for your lens(es) will give you a great idea to begin with. Also, using small apertures (about f/11 on 4/3 and f/13 on APS-C sensors) might lead to diffraction effects thus a slight softening of your image (although generally not major). Most lenses are sharpest around f/4 to f/8 (depending on the lens), which is why I prefer to use that range most often. Hope that helps; keep an eye out for a vid on this sometime soon.

binarygraphite says:

Hi! Great question. The answer can be a little involved and I’ve been meaning to do a video regarding this area (and hyperfocal distance) but in short it depends on what focal length (FL) and aperture you’re using. For example, if I’m shooting at 12mm with f/4 and I’m focused to 3m then my DOF is from 1.389m to infinity. The longer the FL the farther away the nearest focus distance. So here’s what I can recommend: 1) look up the DOF table for your len(ses) and …

Abhijeet Barve says:

Shooting landscape in f5.6 is a new to me. Wont it throw many things out of focus due to shallow DOF? I guess f8-f16 would be ideal, please correct me if I am wrong

… writing a book or two (or even just creating a photo book) and self-publish through an online service like Blurb. Of course, you could sell prints of your work and create various other types of merchandise too, like calendars. If you keep an eye on my blog, I’ll likely write up a post fairly soon on this because I have some additional thoughts, but it’s easier to convey them there than in the comments here.

binarygraphite says:

Well I don’t think I know what is the “best” way but I have some suggestions that might be worthwhile. Above all I wouldn’t say it’s easy to make a living out of it. However, strong dedication and constant marketing (like online [blogs, Flickr, Facebook, Twitter, own website, even YouTube] and to galleries, magazines, stock photo agencies, marketing firms, etc.) would certainly help and in my opinion is a must. In addition, you could also consider…

David Heaton says:

Hi, ive been shooting for about a year now and have grown to love landscape photography, I was wondering what do you think the best way to get into landscape photography as a career?

binarygraphite says:

You’re welcome and thank you kindly for the comment and subscription! 😀

smokycatproductions says:

Thank you for the post.

Your vids are very informative, and you have excellent presentation skills!

binarygraphite says:

Hi! That’s basically correct.
Larger aperture (big hole) = small f-numbers like f/1.4 or f/2, and small depth of field (less in focus)

Small aperture (small hole) = larger f-numbers like f/8 or f/11, and larger depth of field (more in focus)

If you want to learn more about aperture, I have a video on that; see episode 21.

wasdanda says:

hey,have a question? if f number goes down like f5.6 then the depth of field is also going down, is’n it correct? so you should you use large f number which means smaller aperture size for large area in focused? 7.14 in video,
I am a beginner.

binarygraphite says:

But I wish you good luck with the E-1. Even if it’s only 6MP, you could still make really nice 11×14″ prints with it.

binarygraphite says:

I will add this though. I still have my E-500 which has an 8MP CCD and I personally like its color reproduction and “feel” of its images better than my E-3. It doesn’t have the dynamic range and lower noise leves of the E-3 (amongst other things), but I’ve found that the images straight out of the E-500 don’t need as much tweaking compared to the other.

binarygraphite says:

Hi, thank you for the comment! I did a little online research and found a great article from a semiconductor manufacturer discussing CCD vs. CMOS; I posted the link on my Twitter and FB pages. Although I don’t own either camera, the E-410 might “win” in regard to image quality, simply due to using newer technology than the aging E-1. That aside, I do agree with you that many E-1 users love the cam and I’ve seen such comments too (and great images).

binarygraphite says:

Thank you again geru2000! Will do!

geru2000 says:

What can I say another great video on photography. Keep them coming,

binarygraphite says:

– Turn the camera to portrait orientation (you get a little extra resolution this way when the images are finally stitched)
– Keep the same focus and focal length for all images
– Try to keep the same exposure for each shot (or very similar; most software can compensate a little)
– Overlap around 20-30% of each image
– For best results use a tripod, but many programs can deal quite well with hand held shots too.

And have fun on your trip!

binarygraphite says:

You’re welcome Rob! Glad you liked. There are several ways to stitch together landscape photos. Photoshop has the ability (File > Automate > Photomerge) and there are some software products that specifically do this; one I use often is called Panorama Maker by Arcsoft. I’m planning an episode on doing panoramas, but that may be a little while. nonetheless, here are a few tips (in the next comment):

robheald1 says:

Thank you so much imre 🙂 just in time for my trip on Wednesday 😉 quick question, how do you go about stitching landscape photos? And another amazing video

binarygraphite says:

Hello Ken! Thank you again sir! I had a request about a week or so ago for macro photography and if all goes as planned, that’ll actually be my next episode. Saw your videos too, but I think you’re already doing a great job! Hopefully though you’ll find something useful in the next show.

binarygraphite says:

Ha! I meant to do it earlier but I went to watch a movie first. All of the links should be working now. I had tons of fun out there, really good weather too!

binarygraphite says:

You’re very welcome!

KennethKramm says:

Imre, you are an excellent teacher. Thanks. Your recommendations helps me a great deal. Suggestion for future Youtube: Macrophotography.  I’m most interested in photographing insects. See for example my Youtube titled “Dragonfly World.” for the type of photography and videos I want to enhance.

JunichiK94 says:

hey imre i just have a small suggestion
@1:30, @2:19, @6:07 u can actually add a link to your other videos so people don’t have to look for it
thanks again! i hope u had fun!
