Negative space

Negative space is the area surrounding the main subject in a photograph which is left unoccupied. Put simply, it is the space around the object itself that helps define the positive space (or main focus).

The whole point of taking pictures is so that you don’t have to explain things with words.~ Elliott Erwitt

Exposure: Learn Photography 3

I am back in town and I was expecting some time to explore more about “exposure”. BUT our default weather is back and unfortunately I might not get chance to take my camera out for next 10 days (according to trusted weather forecast sites 😦 ).

I like the explanation on “Exposure” by Raj@XDrive and would love to go in field for practicals with birds as my subject. For time being I am using my old clicks from 2 years ago.  I had seen some pictures of blur or milky effect water falls and I was eager to capture such impressions. I read some articles and blogs. Due to the complicated explanation (and lack of patience on my side at that time), I decided to try different apertures and shutter speeds, and to learn a little bit on my own. I knew nothing about ISO then, not much even now as I have not experimented with it. In all my images it is 100.

It was a bright sunny day. learnphoto3_1 The settings were 1/125 sek. f/5,6 55 mm. Lens was set at maximum aperture and hence so much light. (Am I correct?)

 

Example of changing the shutter speed but keeping aperture constant. (please click the images for a better view and to check the settings).

And my final photo for this session. Here I used Shutter priority.

Getting blur effect and being happy!

The settings were 3/10 sec.,  f/36,  55 mm

All these pictures were captured using 18-55 kit lens. What shall be the difference if we use another lens? say 55-300 mm.  How to make good use of 55-300 mm lens? Will there be any post about various lenses and their uses?

Happy Teacher’s day Raj!
