Practical Photography Guide

Practical Photography Guide

A teaching resource provided by Alex Everitt.

Resource Description

This guide has been created for students who are new to photography and can be used at GCSE, A level or even Art Foundation level courses. It has been designed to be a quick reference resource for students to use as their confidence in the subject grows.

Within the guide I have included the following:

-A quick reference guide to Nikon and Canon DSLR cameras
-Basic guidelines for taking photographs.
-Guide to Shutter Speed, Aperture and ISO, including Depth of Field and Time Lapse photography.
-Guide to Lenses and Metering, including Focal Length, Wide Angle Lenses and Telephoto Lenses. An explanation of metering is given and how to use the different types of metering to achieve certain photographs.
-Guide to different lighting techniques, including White Balance and Studio lighting with illustrated examples.

I have used this guide with my own students and they have found it to be a very valuable resource.
