--> Want to improve your photography skills? Photography is really all about the light.  How much light gets into your camera to make the image.  You’ll hear a lot about the “big three” or the “exposure triangle” when learning to shoot in manual mode.  These refer to ISO, aperture, and shutter speed.  

I shoot in manual mode exclusively and when I go to set my settings, I always set my ISO first, so we’ll start there.  ISO is all about the sensitivity level of your camera to available light.  A lower number represents lower sensitivity to light while higher numbers mean heightened sensitivity. The drawback in using increased sensitivity is that it produces noisier images. Simply put, you end up with grainy pictures if you use high ISO. One advantage of DSLRs is that you can increase the ISO and they handle better in lower light situations. Of course, we’d all love to have the highest quality images, but the disadvantage of shooting with higher ISOs and having an increase in noise/grain can be a small price to pay when capturing memories at night or at a ballet recital.

PHOTOGRAPHY f/2.0 | DSLR vs. P&S cameras

I know that not all scrapbookers are photographers, so I thought we should start out simply with a discussion about cameras. I’ll preface this with the fact that currently, I do not have a point and shoot camera.  I use my cell phone for random snapshots and I’ll focus on the cell phone camera another day.  I totally rock the cell phone and you will to! ;)  I have been thinking about one of those polaroid type instant cameras for fun with the kiddies, but have no actual experience with them…yet.

P&S vs DSLR – What is the difference and what are the pros and cons for each?
