Concepts in Photography
Standing photography
Compose your shot, stand up straight with your feet shoulder-length
apart, and keep your elbows pointed down.
Shooting postures
A correct posture for stabilizing the camera is necessary for taking a good
photo. Even if you hold a camera correctly, the wrong posture can cause
the camera to shake. Stand up straight and remain still to maintain a
steady base for your camera. When shooting with a slow shutter speed,
hold your breath to minimize body movement.
Holding the camera
Hold the camera with your right hand and place your right index finger on
the shutter button. Place your left hand under the lens for support.

Concepts in Photography
Crouching photography
Compose your shot, crouch with one knee touching the ground, and keep
a straight posture.
Using the display
To take photos at high or low angles, tilt the display up or down. You can
tilt the display up to 90° upwards ( ) or 45° downwards ( ).
• Keep the display closed ( ) when the camera is not in use.
• Tilt the display only within the angle allowed. Failing to do so may damage
your camera.

Concepts in Photography
Low-angle shot
A low-angle shot is a shot from a camera positioned below your eyeline,
looking up the subject.
High-angle shot
A high-angle shot is a shot from a camera positioned above your eyeline,
looking down on the subject.

Concepts in Photography
Aperture
The aperture is one of the three factors that determine the exposure. The
aperture housing contains thin, metal plates that open and close to let
light through the aperture and into the camera. The size of the aperture
is related to the amount of light: a larger aperture allows more light and a
smaller aperture allows less light.
Aperture sizes
Minimum aperture Medium aperture Maximum aperture
Aperture opened slightly Aperture opened wide
The size of the aperture is represented by a value known as an“F-number“.
The f-number represents the focal length divided by the diameter of the
lens. For example, if a lens with a 50 mm focal length has an f-number of
F2, the diameter of the aperture is 25 mm. (50 mm/25 mm = F2)
The smaller the f-number, the greater the size of the aperture.
The size of the aperture opening is defined as the Exposure Value (EV).
Increasing the Exposure Value (+1 EV) means the amount of light doubles.
Decreasing the Exposure Value (-1 EV) means the amount of light halves.
You can also use the exposure compensation feature to fine-tune the
amount of light by subdividing exposure values into 1/2, 1/3 EV, and so on.

You can blur or sharpen the background of a photo by changing the size
of the aperture. A large aperture gives your photos a shallow depth of
field (DOF). Objects immediately in front of or behind your subject will
be blurred, while the subject will be in focus. A small aperture gives your
photos a deep depth of field. Objects far in front or far behind your subject
and your subject will be in focus.

The aperture housing contains several blades. These blades move together and
control the amount of light passing through the center of the aperture. The
number of blades also affects the shape of light when shooting night scenes. If
an aperture has an even number of blades, light divides into an equal number
of sections. If the number of blades is odd, the number of sections is double the
number of blades.
For example, an aperture with 8 blades divides light into 8 sections and an
aperture with 7 blades into 14 sections.

Shutter speed
Shutter speed refers to the amount of time it takes to open and close the
shutter. It controls the amount of light which passes through the aperture
before it reaches the image sensor.
Shutter speeds are measured in seconds and parts of a second. On
many cameras, the shutter speeds are approximately halved with each
succeeding setting - 1 s, 1/2 s, 1/4 s, 1/8 s, 1/15 s, etc. Like successive
aperture settings, each successive shutter speed setting lets in about half
the amount of light. Consequently, each successive shutter speed setting
equals an EV (Exposure Value) change of about 1 EV.
Exposure
+1 EV
-1 EV
1 s 1/2 s 1/4 s 1/8 s 1/15 s 1/30 s
Shutter speed
Therefore, the faster the shutter speed, the less light will be let in. Likewise,
the slower the shutter speed, the more light will be let in.
A slow shutter speed allows more light into the camera to make photos
brighter. However, because the shutter is open longer, moving subjects
appear blurred. A fast shutter speed allows less light in to make photos
darker. However, because the shutter is open for a shorter time, moving
subjects look sharper and more focused.

ISO sensitivity
The exposure of an image is determined by the sensitivity of the camera.
This sensitivity is based on international film standards, known as ISO
standards. On digital cameras, this sensitivity rating is used to represent
the sensitivity of the digital mechanism that captures the image.
ISO sensitivity doubles as the number doubles. For example, an
ISO 200 setting is capable of capturing images at twice the speed of an
ISO 100 setting. However, higher ISO settings can result in“noise“—small
specks, spots, and other phenomena in a photo that give the shot a noisy
or dirty appearance. As a general rule, it is best to use a low ISO setting
to prevent noise in your photos, unless you are shooting in darkened
environments or at night.
Changes in the quality and brightness according to ISO sensitivity
Because a low ISO sensitivity means the camera will be less sensitive to
light, you need more light to have an optimal exposure. When using a low
ISO sensitivity, open the aperture more or reduce the shutter speed to
allow more light to enter the camera. For example, on a sunny day when
light is abundant, a low ISO sensitivity does not require a slow shutter
speed. However, in a dark place or at night, a low ISO sensitivity will
result in a blurry photo. Therefore, it is recommended to increase the ISO
sensitivity by a moderate amount.

ISO sensitivity

How the aperture setting, shutter speed,
and ISO sensitivity control exposure
The aperture setting, shutter speed, and ISO sensitivity are closely
interconnected in photography. The aperture setting controls the opening
that regulates the light that enters the camera, while the shutter speed
determines the length of time that light is allowed to enter. ISO sensitivity
determines the speed at which the film reacts to light. Together, these
three aspects are described as the triangle of exposure.
A change in shutter speed, aperture value, or ISO sensitivity can be offset
by adjustments to the others to maintain the amount of light. The results,
however, change according to the settings. For example, shutter speed is
useful in expressing movement, aperture can control the depth of field,
and ISO sensitivity can control the graininess of a photo.

Correlation between focal length, angle,
and perspective
Focal length, which is measured in millimeters, is the distance between
the middle of the lens to its focal point. It affects the angle and perspective
of captured images. A short focal length translates into a wide angle,
which allows you to capture a wide shot. A long focal length translates
into a narrow angle, which allows you to capture telephoto shots.

Long focal length

Look at these photos below and compare the changes.

Normally, a lens with a wide angle is suitable for shooting landscapes and a lens
with a narrow angle is recommended for shooting sports events or portraits.

Concepts in Photography
Depth of field
The depth of field (DOF) is the focused area around the subject.
In general, the DOF can be shallow or deep. In photos with a shallow DOF,
the subject is sharply focused, the background is blurred and the subject
stands out. In contrast, photos with a deep DOF have all the elements of
the photo in sharp focus.
You can create a photo with a shallow DOF by using a telescopic lens or by
selecting a low aperture value. You can create a photo with a deep DOF by
using a wide angle lens or by selecting a high aperture value.
Shallow Depth of Field Deep Depth of Field
What controls out-of-focus effects?
DOF depends on the aperture value
A low aperture value indicates that the aperture has a wide opening. The
wider the aperture, the shallower the DOF becomes. Conversely, a high
aperture value indicates that the aperture has a narrow opening. The
narrower the aperture, the deeper the DOF becomes.

Concepts in Photography
DOF depends on focal length
The longer the focal length, the shallower the DOF. A telescopic lens with
a longer focal length will capture a photo with a shallow DOF better than a
lens with a shorter focal length.
A photo captured with an 16 mm wide-angle lens
A photo captured with a 100 mm telescope lens
DOF depends on the distance between the subject and the
camera
The shorter the distance between the subject and the camera, the
shallower the DOF is. Therefore, taking a photo close to a subject generally
results in a photo with a shallow DOF.

DOF preview
You can press the Preview button to get an idea of what your shot will look
like before shooting. The camera adjusts the aperture to the predefined
settings and shows the results on the screen. Set the function of the
Preview button to Optical Preview. (p. 189)
Composition
The way that objects are arranged in a photo is referred to as its
composition. A good composition emphasizes the photo’s subjects
by drawing attention to them and by balancing them with the other
elements in the photo.
Following the rule of thirds is one method that usually results in good
compositions.
Rule of Thirds
To use the rule of thirds, divide the image into a 3x3 pattern of equal
rectangles.
To compose photos that best emphasize the subject, make sure the
subject is located at one of the corners of the center rectangle.
Page: 26
26
Concepts in Photography
Using the rule of thirds will create photos with stable and compelling
compositions. Below are a few examples.
Photos with two subjects
If your subject is in one corner of the photo, it creates an unbalanced
composition. You can stabilize the photo by capturing a second subject in
the opposite corner to balance the weight of the photo.
Subject 1
Subject 2

When taking landscape photos, centering the horizon will create an
unbalanced effect. Give more weight to the photo by moving the horizon
up or down.

Flash
Light is one of the most important components in photography. However,
you will not always have enough of light in all situations. Making use of a
flash allows you to compensate for the lack of light and create a variety of
effects.
The flash, also known as a strobe or speed light, provides adequate
exposure in low-light conditions. It is also useful in light-abundant
situations. For example, you can use the flash to provide light when a
subject is in shadow or use it to capture clearly both the subject and the
background under backlit conditions.
Back lit subjects without flash Back lit subjects with flash
Flash guide number
The model number of a flash refers to the flash’s power, and the maximum
amount of light created is represented by a value known as the“guide
number“. A flash with a higher guide number emits a larger amount
of light than a flash with a lower guide number. The guide number is
calculated by multiplying the distance from the flash to the subject by the
aperture value when the ISO sensitivity is set to 100.
Guide number = Flash to Subject Distance X Aperture value
Aperture value = Guide number/Flash to Subject Distance
Flash to Subject Distance = Guide number/Aperture value
If you know the flash’s guide number, you can estimate an appropriate
flash-to-subject distance when setting the flash manually. For example, if a
flash has a guide number of GN 20 and is 4 meters away from the subject,
the optimal aperture value is F5.0.

Concepts in Photography
Bounce Photography
Bounce photography refers to the method of bouncing light off of the
ceiling or walls so that the light spreads evenly over the subject. Normally,
photos captured with the flash may appear unnatural and cast shadows.
Subjects in photos captured with bounce photography cast no shadows
and look smooth due to evenly spread light.
