Example text

With people as subjects, firing the flash might erase the shadows cast by the nose and brows, but with landscapes, no flash is bright enough. Golden hours The golden hours of the day are the early morning or late afternoon, when the sun’s rays are filtered as they pass through a thicker atmosphere and, consequently, radiate a soft glow. All objects illuminated reflect a golden hue and cast a gray shadow. The sun radiates a golden glow during the golden hours. Because the illumination is at the borderline, it is neither too dark nor too bright, you need to pay full attention to all three prime values: shutter speed, aperture and ISO.

Even the best lens cannot yield a sharp image if the camera is handled carelessly, in a shaky way. The smallest vibration can affect sharpness: that is why the tripod is the pros’ best friend. Unless you want blur for special effects, steady is the word when it comes to good handling technique. Both long exposures and high ISO values capture large amounts of light. But the one does it by keeping the shutter open for a period of time, the other by making the sensor more light sensitive. The former gathers pixels in a slow but clean manner; the latter captures pixels literally in a flash, together with pollutants called noise.

In statistical terms, it shows the evenness of the distribution of the mass of dark and bright pixels on the face of the frame. It is shaped like a “Bell curve” or a mountain-like drawing showing the majority or average as the mound in the middle and the extremes as the downward slopes on the sides. For example, given a population of one thousand persons, some of them will tall and some will be short, but the vast majority will be of average height. Translated into a Bell curve, the vast majority will be the mound in the middle, the short ones the thin part of slope on the left side and the tall ones the thin part of the slope on the right side.
