A lot of people have been asking me questions regarding certain photos that I have shared to you here on this site, as well as on my Facebook Page. The questions would normally be concentrated on topics like the kind of gear used, settings chosen, and lighting conditions involved. In line with this matter, I have decided to establish a Blog Mini-Series called "The Photo in Question", wherein I will try my best to give thorough yet easy to understand explanations and descriptions in line s to how the photo was created. The series will also have its own category on the right side of the page, as you can see here.
Let's start with this photo...
Now, this kind of shot was no longer uncommon at the time I took this. However, a lot of my friends were still in the dark as to how this was done. So, to keep things simple, I will just answer two critical questions regarding this photo.
Camera settings used for this shot: 1/250th sec. shutter speed, at f/5.6, ISO 100... at 85mm. focal length (but you already know the last part, right? ^_^)
To put everything in a nutshell, the original goal of this series is to let you understand the fundamentals of each camera settings, and their corresponding effects on the intended shot. The descriptions and explanations here won't be that scientific, but it should allow enough accuracy for you to properly learn from them, as well as to create your own interesting photos based on the data given.
Happy shooting! :)
