The strategy for choosing the optimum diaphragm
Find the aperture value at which your lens shows the best sharpness, and use this value whenever possible (most often it is f/8 or so). If you don't have enough…

Histogram

Getting the correct exposure when shooting with a digital camera is easy. In this article, you will learn what a histogram is, how it can be used to control exposure, and what difficulties you may encounter when determining exposure in practice. I dare to hope that you already know the theoretical basics of exposure and know what shutter speed, aperture, exposure correction, dynamic range, what are the ways of exposure camera and exposure detection modes.

Light

Light is the heart of photography. The camera does not see the image. There are no lines, shapes, or textures for it. A film or digital sensor is only susceptible to a stream of photons of higher or lower intensity projected on them by the lens.

Light is much more important than the subject, because, in fact, we are not able to see the object as such, but only see the light reflected from it, which allows us to judge the properties of the object. A novice photographer is looking for a subject to shoot, while an experienced one is hunting for light.

The problem is that both good (from a photographic point of view) and bad light are not always obvious to the untrained eye. Continue reading

Don't forget the polarizer
If you are forced to photograph landscapes or architecture in the middle of the day, a polarizing filter can help you. The polarizer makes the sky darker, eliminates sun glare…
