3 Big Questions Asked By Beginners

When beginners first start in photography, they typically have a ton of questions but there are 3 big questions that are asked the most. In this podcast, we will talk in-depth about the top 3 questions.


Question 1: What is the Exposure Triangle?

The exposure triangle is a collection of “settings” on your camera that control the amount of light that comes into your camera. These settings are Aperture, Shutter Speed, and ISO. The Aperture comes the amount of light coming into your camera by adjusting the blades in your camera lens to either open up wide or to narrow them down. The Shutter Speed controls the light by opening and closing the shutter door in your camera to allow more or less light to hit the camera’s sensor. And lastly, the ISO adjusts how sensitive your camera’s sensor is to light.


Question 2: Should I Shoot In RAW or JPEG?

One popular question for beginners is should I set my camera to capture JPEG photos or RAW images. The short answer for most photographers who want to get the most out of their images is shooting in RAW is the best option. That being said, there are times were shooting in JPEG can actually be beneficial. We will talk about that is this episode of the podcast


Question 3: What Lens Should I Invest In First?

This question is a popular one but it is probably the toughest to answer because it depends on the style of photography you shoot. No matter what style of photography you shoot, however, there is one lens that I love. It is the 50mm f1.8 lens. Most camera models have a 50mm prime lens and it is a great, and fairly inexpensive, camera lens that is good to keep in your camera bag. We talk about why in this episode.
