He was spot on about some of my fears about light. To be honest, I have shot with a DSLR before but I NEVER studied photography to make my images better. Did not read the manual or even Google some shit... I, at one very ignorant time, believed that a good camera enhanced photography. WRONG. With that, I got images too bright, too dark and everywhere in between. I did hate light. I did blame my camera. Hello my name is Pinky, and I'm lazy.
After realizing, again, thanks to Jerry's class, that light is so important and easy to work with, I decided to revisit Exposure. As a side note, I cannot wait to use a film camera again. It's been at least a decade since I had to put in or have film developed. lol. I know it's down the road a bit but man, I can't wait. It's going to be a very fun experiment.
Anywho, I'm mad blabbering today, back to exposure. I studied exposure first, obviously, I'm sure most newbies do. I've been shooting with my iPhone for weeks since then and I still struggle to remember the exposure triangle. The ProCam app allows me to flex this knowledge but every time I go out into my same old park, I can't remember which ISO to use for the desired result...
I originally studied exposure here: http://digital-photography-school.com/learning-exposure-in-digital-photography/
Today I found this website: http://www.cambridgeincolour.com/tutorials/camera-exposure.htm <--- very much better! I am a visual learner so charts and deep details given in graphs and images works best for me. This site has that locked down and I will continue my studies there for a while.
So, I might shoot tonight but I ain't posting nothing tonight! I'm going to continue ma studies and try to beat this info into my head. Can't carry my journal everywhere I go. I understand with practice, I'll be able to recite my exposure qualities like THAT. snap
