Introducing Photography Fundamentals Week

Beginning on Monday I’ll be publishing a series of articles about photography fundamentals. The objective of these articles will be to introduce various topics to readers who may be looking for simple and easy-to-understand information about some key photographic concepts rather than getting bogged down and lost in highly technical explanations.

As I’ve been increasing my photographic coaching with individual novice and beginner photographers it occurred to me that taking this simplified approach could be of benefit to many people. A good analogy is learning to drive a car. Most of us don’t have the need or desire to understand how an internal combustion engine works in order to learn to drive a car effectively and safely. I believe it is the exact same thing with the information needs of many novice and beginner photographers.

Some of the topics that I’ll be covering with my daily articles during Photography Fundamentals Week will include: ISO, aperture, shutter speed, the exposure triangle, sharpness, and basic lens properties.

I hope you enjoy this series of articles, especially those readers who consider themselves to be novice or beginner photographers.

    Even though photography is my hobby and I consider myself a recreational photographer, I am looking forward to your instructional series. It will be a worthwhile exercise to learn more about the fundamentals of photography as it will challenge me to be a much better photographer. Thanks for taking the time and work to put together this series.
