Adding volume to a photo
Human vision is binocular, which means that we have an excellent perception of the shape and volume of objects in space, regardless of the light. But in photography, everything is…

Inverse square law
It is not superfluous to mention here also the law of inverse squares, the action of which you will certainly encounter. It sounds like this: the intensity of light is…

Аuto mode

Fully automatic or green mode does not need to be introduced. The camera thinks about everything here. Not only the shutter speed and aperture, but also autofocus, flash, white balance, in short, everything is under her control.

How many colors are there?
Countless number. The human eye is able to perceive electromagnetic radiation with a wavelength from 380 (purple) to 740 nm (red). Continue reading

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,…

Dynamic range
Light falling on the photodiodes of the digital camera matrix is converted into an electrical signal. For this to happen, the number of photons that hit each individual photodiode must…
