Photo math isn’t math at all. It’s arithmetic. It’s adding and subtracting light. It’s also either multiplying by 2 or dividing by 2. That’s it. Photo arithmetic is easy. It
The Weekly Wrap-up compiles interesting articles published this week on Photofocus. This week, we tackled the ins and outs of ISO, got tips on how to recover tough exposures, began
When it comes to exposure in photography, it seems that most photographers have a reasonably good understanding of the impact of both the shutter speed and the lens aperture. But
Shutter Priority exposure mode is a fantastic tool for controlling how motion appears in your final image. This exposure mode allows the photographer to set the shutter speed while the
In photography, ISO is a rating of your camera sensor’s sensitivity to light. A lower ISO like 50 or 100 means that the sensor will require longer shutter speeds and
When just starting out in photography the typical person will begin their journey with the camera set to Auto. Using this mode tells the camera to choose the ISO, shutter
When we talk about photographing behaviors and events as they unfold, we think in terms of being “reactive”, or shooting on the fly.

Let’s think technical for a moment. A properly exposed image is created by mixing three key elements, known as the Exposure Triangle—Aperture, Shutter Speed and ISO—to produce the right amount
At the Paralympic Games in Atlanta in 1996, digital capture was on the horizon. It wasn’t ready for prime time. The photograph above is of the Canadian Tandem Cycling Team.
Photographs are wonderful things, and one of their amazing characteristics is the detail we can see in a picture. I’m pretty observant of details in face to face contact, so
