Basics of a Camera

Photography is the 'Art of Capturing Light'. For a while I was happy shooting pictures with my Sony Cybershot camera. And very soon, I started realizing its limitations. There were couple of instances where I was disappointed with the quality of the picture and the depth of the image. I have shown 2 pictures below where I was unsuccessful in capturing a photo of a butterfly. The camera was simply not able to cope with the speed of the butterfly flapping its wings :( And in the other photograph, there was simply not enough focus on the object itself. Very poor photographs, so no harsh comments please...




And thus, I thought I will buy a new camera. Last few months I have been breaking my head trying to decide what camera to buy. The camera & lens specifications are quite tough to understand. I decided it was first better to know how a camera works and what each parameter of camera signifies. I have been spending time on learning the fundamentals of photography. Its quite interesting.

The link which I have shared below is a very simple yet highly informative introduction to how a camera works and what are the various specifications you need to look into when taking a photograph. The first 30 pages are useful, while the remaining might not be of interest.I hope you find it useful.

Yes, It is a new type of photography which I just invented. I am yet to decide a name for it, but I have plans to patent it :)

Btw, the second photo is not of a butterfly's but Batman flying in a colored costume ;)
