This new blog replaces the previous essays and articles on my website and should provide a better organised and more appealing area to visit. Content is arranged in essays on photographic topics and technical articles on, well, technical stuff. The essays cover artistic photography, an approach to critique and the ethics of street photography – more to follow.
In the technical articles, I set out to follow the path of light:
- Discussing the characteristics of the lens and depth of field
- Metering light, exposure, dynamic range and the colour of ambient light
- Choosing the shooting mode and shutter speed
- Characteristics of the digital light sensor and the choice of Raw vs JPEG
In addition, there is an article on colour theory. The articles mentioned above provide links to more details on further pages when appropriate.
Finally, a glossary provides a useful means to find content in the technical articles.
