Magic Light - Photography Tutorial


It has been our observation that most great nature photographers were naturalists, to some degree, prior to becoming photographers. The camera, to a naturalist, is a means of recording and sharing an emotional response to the outdoors. The art of nature photography becomes the naturalists ability to transfer an emotional response comprised of 360 degrees of outdoors filled with sounds, smells, textures, and an infinite number of views onto a two dimensional print. The process is developed over many years and requires emotional focus, artistic inclinations, knowledge and appreciation of nature, and an understanding of the photographic tools, namely, light, cameras, and film. - View Tutorial »

Understanding Camera Metering and Exposure - Photography Tutorial

Knowing how your digital camera meters light is critical for achieving consistent and accurate exposures. Metering is the brains behind how your camera determines the shutter speed and aperture, based on lighting conditions and ISO speed. Metering options often include partial, evaluative zone or matrix, center-weighted and spot metering. Each of these have subject lighting conditions for which they excel-- and for which they fail.
