Photography FAQ Pt. 2

7 Building Blocks of Photography


Photography FAQ 2 answers the next set of most frequently asked photography questions I get asked and follows on from FAQ 1.

Most of the questions are a bit too big to answer in a few sentences so the links below will take you to other films which will explain more about each answer.

I hope this helps and answers your questions...

All these frequently asked questions bug all photographers when they're starting out - the certainly bugged me. The key to understanding them is to watch a video, practise the technique for yourself and then move onto the next. Take your time when you practise and give yourself permission to make mistakes. No one was born with this knowledge - it has to be learnt.

If you drive a car just think of all the complicated things you do just going to the corner shop. And many of them have no definitive answer. How much should I turn the steering wheel to go round a corner? Which gear should I use when driving to New York?
