How Exposure Affects Your Photos a Beginners Guide (Knowledge is Power Photo Series)

by C.F. Mills

Taking a straightforward look at the “Exposure Triangle”, the author explains Aperture (f-stop), Shutter Speed and ISO. Filled with examples of how simple changes to these three settings on your camera can totally change the look of your photographs. Helping you move beyond leaving your camera in auto mode and taking ordinary snapshots, to learning to use the manual features of your camera that allows you to take extraordinary works of art. Written in a simple to understand format with exercises to help you master your new found knowledge.

With the price of DSLR cameras getting more affordable, more consumers are purchasing nice cameras, full of bells and whistles, but finding themselves continuing to shoot in automatic mode just as they did with their point and shoot cameras.

As a photographer I find myself being approached by people with questions of why their photographs look like snapshots (and often bad snapshots) even though they have a nice camera. I realized quickly that there is a need to explain the building blocks of how to use the manual controls on a camera, but in simple terms that the novice photographer can understand.

I hope that this book will help you venture beyond automatic mode and allow you the freedom to get creative with your photography.


by James W. Nelson

Prisoners-of-war don’t have many choices. They live where they’re told, eat and drink what they’re told, and go to the bathroom only how they’re allowed. And they’re locked up. They can’t go to the grocery store, a restaurant, for sure not to a bar.  Oh, yes, and no sex. They’re not even allowed to see a woman, maybe in the far, far, distance. I’ve never been a prisoner-of-war, so I don’t know, exactly, what happens, but I can imagine, and I’m pretty sure a prisoner-of-war camp is not a very pretty place.
      As said, “Experiments,” is not about a prisoner-of-war camp. But there are some similarities. Nutrition research volunteers are absolutely locked up. They can go to movies, the mall, bookstores, pretty much whatever, but their every move is chaperoned. No candy, no pop, no cigarettes, no alcohol, not even a public water fountain, no anything that people living a normal life can have anytime they want.
      Life at MEAL, the Metabolism & Excretion Analysis Laboratory, is not a normal place. Men living there are told what to eat, when to eat, how much to eat, and definitely how to go to the bathroom. At the end of their meals they’re required to clean their dishes, literally, to lick them clean, so that they get every drop of nutrition that was measured out for each individual. There’s lots of free time, but tests like electrocardiograms, electroencephalograms, underwater weighing, controlled exercise, etc., go on all week. So, it’s not really like a prisoner-of-war camp, and nobody gets tortured or brutalized.
      And even though they signed their name and get paid for living under these conditions for up to six months at a time, they still have the option of stopping, of quitting. And that’s the clincher, what makes living at MEAL way similar to, but also way different from, a prisoner-of-war camp: Any time they can’t take it a moment longer, they can leave.
      The real test is emotional: Frustrations build, tempers flare, love affairs, friendships, hatreds, develop.
An excerpt:
Shea McTory felt guilty for photographing this cruel scene, but the world needed to know.  No, the truth was, Shea McTory needed to further his hoped-for journalism career.  And he had just learned something about himself that he would rather have not found out.  He knew he had always been, basically, a loser, but he had always tried to not be an asshole too.  But that’s what was going through his mind.  He was an asshole.
  The subjects of the cruel scene, the two boys, stood beside each other.  They were skin and bone.  I’m an asshole.  The sight of them, the smells in the room, the pure ugliness, all were making Shea’s insides crawl.  His skin was crawling.  He could barely look at the boys.  No way could he touch them.  No way.   I’m an asshole.  And Natalie hadn’t even said, specifically, what was happening, but he knew that she knew, and Shea didn’t even want to know.

Why I Wrote This Book

I love taking pictures. I am what you would call a person with a camera in their hand or you could say a camera grows out of my hand. I do not own a heavy sophisticated camera. Just give me an inexpensive digital camera and that is all I need.

I am a journalist and take pictures on all my assignments. When out on special occasions with family and friends I am the person that is asked to take the pictures.

I do like to have between and six and ten telephoto lens. Now there are bigger sizes out there but I like to carry it in my purse and not be bulky or heavy.

There is a picture waiting to be taken everywhere the eye can see. The sky, the clouds have always fascinated me and they are every color you can run together like a fine art, water color painting.

Pictures of people of children and babies are so special. When you are creating your family history pictures are so important to keep the memory alive of your loves ones who have gone before you.

With a digital camera it is so easy to do. Remember the old fashioned cameras where you had to buy film and then take them to a photo place to make prints of your pictures. I am not selling digital cameras but I do want you to know that with digital cameras the whole world of photography changed.

In the days of the camera with film, I couldn’t, wouldn’t, or shouldn’t take a picture. I would cut somebody’s head or feet off. I was a lousy photographer and never used a camera. I let somebody else take my pictures for me. I like to do everything myself including my own pictures and of course they were never like I wanted.

Now I can take all I want of whatever I want.

In this book of pictures I have taken them to look at or if you are an artist of any media use them for inspiration in your drawings or paintings.

The photographs are of the sky, trees, mountains, flowers, and ocean not in any particular order.

The photographs in this book were taken by three different cameras.

As with any type of art, the light source is always most important for creating the best photographs you can get. Try different times of the day. See which works best for you.

Then aim your camera and shoot. Try to keep your hands steady so your photo won’t be jittery. Any photo can be cropped or fixed with the software on the market today. There is simple to extremely complicated software. This depends on what level your photography will be used.

Most important when you have a new camera or even using one that is a little worn. Read your instructions. You can always learn something new.

Also a great way to take great photographs to take a class an expert in the subject is always the way to go.

Have fun taking pictures. Just point and shoot.
