Video: The Three Basics of Photography Exposure

Video: The Three Basics of Photography

After writing the “Three Basics of Photography” article, I decided that the Bucket Analogy was fine but still a little confusing, and I wanted something that would appeal to my visually oriented visitors. After thinking about it for a while, I decided that it would be simplest to forgo analogies altogether and just use a simplified camera, representing light as discrete, little cubic units. That reminded me of an old-school video game… so this video has a bit of a theme.

I hope that you take a moment to “Like” this video on YouTube. You can visit it directly by following this link: The Three Basics of Exposure & Photography

It’s an old video and basic tutorial but found it very catchy and informative for us “dummies”. Thank you!

Thanks so much for this video… I appreciate having the visuals to help me understand apperture and f-stops… I had the concept for ISO from film days, but still was confused about the others.. This helped make it very clear.

The illustration of DOF is incomplete – might mislead those beginners rather than educate. Could have used the 8bit diagram to show how objects beyond a fixed distance in front and behind the point of focus will be out of focus (causing the blurred effect) and how the aperture settings affect that distance.

LOL @ “All Your Base…”

Was that clip-art Matthew that made an appearance in the video?  :P

Those sounds sure brought back some memories!

Nice little bonus screen there at the end with your equipment and rankings.

Good information as always.
