DSLR Basics: Stops and Metering

or copy the link

www.photoextremist.com In this photography video tutorial you will learn how your DSLR camera references light as “stops”, how it meters light to give you the aperture, shutter speed, ISO values, and how adjusting any of those settings to your liking in certain situations can give you a better image than relying on luck (Full AUTO mode with no further adjustments) 100% of the time.

13:17 do you can telll me what’s the settings that you use? tx.

Ricus Nortje says:

Hi. What settings would you recommend in the following situation: taking shots of a MMA fight, generally low light, fast action and spot metering doesn’t work because sometimes you need to focus on a spot where the fighters will be in the next second when they strike so don’t have a subject to ‘meter’?

Angelika Heidi says:

Evening! Have you thought about photo sfxart tricks (google it)? My friend Dan made some amazing pics with their video lessons.

@Nouvelli Page Spec sheet and optics chart

Nouvelli Page says:

At 2:39, you mentioned that your will adjust your F.STOP to 8 because it’s the sharpest point of your lens. How do we determine what is the sharpest point of any lens, hummm.

buyselltrade9 says:

what kind of camera is that?

SDG977 says:

mkayreagan says:

Love your videos, and you cat too. Just ordered my first DSLR today!

Amritansh Bhardwaj says:

I would suggest you Canon because I find it more worth it. Canon has more accessories then Nikon 2nd Nikon accessories are more expensive then Canon. There otherwise no big difference between the two. Rest which ever you find more conv. with you.

Rakesh Satpathy says:

Super like. Can increase my budget for DSLR. Thanks

UncleRob199 says:

Canon users: Remember the exposure indicator is reversed, compared to the one in this video, for you, left is darker and right is brighter

pingerrain says:

This video really made me understand more about the functions. It is more clear than all my other photographer friends trying to explain these stuff to me.

I hold a Canon 60D and I still am able to apply to my own camera functions.
Looking forward to more tutorials. Thanks!

PhotoExtremist says:

I don’t think that one has as much power as the LP160

minahilnoor says:

I have a question! I bought your ebook and you’ve listed the lumopro as a cheaper alternative speedlight for the SB-900. Please let me know whether the YONGNUO YN565EX Flash Speedlight is also another good cheap alternative or not. Thanks! love your videos!

acmav289 says:

I would have still shot at F8(or 5.6 minimum) on the handheld shot and bumped up the ISO extremely high and hopefully compensate with that. With today’s PP software noise can be reduced a TON, decent lighting helps out noise performance as well.

Shams Al-Khazraji says:

Bought my first camera today, watched all your videos for people such as myself and I can say I learned much in such a short time, really happy you made these videos. Thank you.
