Concepts in Photography
Shooting postures
A correct posture for stabilizing the camera is necessary for taking a good
photo. Even if you hold a camera correctly, the wrong posture can cause
the camera to shake. Stand up straight and remain still to maintain a
steady base for your camera. When shooting with a slow shutter speed,
hold your breath to minimize body movement.
Holding the camera
Hold the camera and place your index finger on the shutter button. For
larger lenses, place your left hand under the lens for support.
13
Concepts in Photography
Standing photography
Compose your shot, stand up straight with your feet shoulder-length
apart, and keep your elbows pointed down.
Crouching photography
Compose your shot, crouch with one knee touching the ground, and keep
a straight posture.
14
Concepts in Photography
Aperture
The aperture is one of the three factors that determine the exposure. The
aperture housing contains thin, metal plates that open and close to let
light through the aperture and into the camera. The size of the aperture
is related to the amount of light: a larger aperture allows more light and a
smaller aperture allows less light.
Aperture sizes
The size of the aperture is represented by a value known as an "F-number."
The f-number represents the focal length divided by the diameter of the
lens. For example, if a lens with a 50 mm focal length has an f-number of
F2, the diameter of the aperture is 25 mm. (50 mm/25 mm = F2)
The smaller the f-number, the greater the size of the aperture.
The opening in the aperture is described as the Exposure Value (EV).
Increasing the Exposure Value (+1 EV) means the amount of light doubles.
Decreasing the Exposure Value (-1 EV) means the amount of light halves.
You can also use the exposure compensation feature to fine-tune the
amount of light by subdividing exposure values into 1/2, 1/3 EV, and so on.

Concepts in Photography
Aperture value and the depth of field
You can blur or sharpen the background of a photo by controlling the
aperture. It is closely related to the depth of field (DOF), which can be
expressed as small or large.
The aperture housing contains several blades. These blades move together and
control the amount of light passing through the center of the aperture. The
number of blades also affects the shape of light when shooting night scenes. If
an aperture has an even number of blades, light divides into an equal number
of sections. If the number of blades is odd, the number of sections is double the
number of blades.
For example, an aperture with 8 blades divides light into 8 sections and an
aperture with 7 blades into 14 sections.

Concepts in Photography
Therefore, the faster the shutter speed, the less light will be let in. Likewise,
the slower the shutter speed, the more light will be let in.
Shutter speed
Shutter speed refers to the amount of time it takes to open and close the
shutter. It controls the amount of light which passes through the aperture
before it reaches the image sensor.
Usually, the shutter speed is manually adjustable. The measurement of the
shutter speed is known as the "Exposure Value" (EV), which is marked in
intervals of 1 s, 1/2 s, 1/4 s, 1/8 s, 1/15 s, 1/1,000 s, 1/2,000 s, and so on.
The photos below illustrate that a slow shutter speed allows more time
for light to enter the camera. This adds a motion blurring effect to moving
objects. On the other hand, a fast shutter speed allows less time to let light
in and the photo more easily freezes subjects in motion.

Concepts in Photography
ISO sensitivity
The exposure of an image is determined by the sensitivity of the camera.
This sensitivity is based on international film standards, known as ISO
standards. On digital cameras, this sensitivity rating is used to represent
the sensitivity of the digital mechanism that captures the image.
ISO sensitivity doubles as the number doubles. For example, an
ISO 200 setting is capable of capturing images at twice the speed of an
ISO 100 setting. However, higher ISO settings can result in "noise"—small
specks, spots, and other phenomena in a photo that give the shot a noisy
or dirty appearance. As a general rule, it is best to use a low ISO setting
to prevent noise in your photos, unless you are shooting in darkened
environments or at night.
Because a low ISO sensitivity means the camera will be less sensitive to
light, you need more light to have an optimal exposure. When using a low
ISO sensitivity, open the aperture more or reduce the shutter speed to
allow more light to enter the camera. For example, on a sunny day when
light is abundant, a low ISO sensitivity does not require a slow shutter
speed. However, in a dark place or at night, a low ISO sensitivity will
result in a blurry photo. Therefore, it is recommended to increase the ISO
sensitivity by a moderate amount.

Concepts in Photography
How the aperture setting, shutter speed,
and ISO sensitivity control exposure
The aperture setting, shutter speed, and ISO sensitivity are closely
interconnected in photography. The aperture setting controls the opening
that regulates the light that enters the camera, while the shutter speed
determines the length of time that light is allowed to enter. ISO sensitivity
determines the speed at which the film reacts to light. Together, these
three aspects are described as the triangle of exposure.

Slow speed
= more light
Fast = still
Slow = blurry
A change in shutter speed, aperture value, or ISO sensitivity can be offset
by adjustments to the others to maintain the amount of light. The results,
however, change according to the settings. For example, shutter speed is
useful in expressing movement, aperture can control the depth of field,
and ISO sensitivity can control the graininess of a photo.

Focal length, which is measured in millimeters, is the distance between
the middle of the lens to its focal point. It affects the angle and perspective
of captured images. A short focal length translates into a wide angle,
which allows you to capture a wide shot. A long focal length translates
into a narrow angle, which allows you to capture telephoto shots.
Depth of field
Portraits or still-life photos mostly acclaimed by people are the ones on
which the background is out of focus so the subject looks pronounced.
Depending on the focused areas, a photo can be blurred or sharpened.
This is called 'a low DOF' or 'a high DOF'.
The depth of field is the focused area around the subject. Therefore, a
small DOF signifies that the focused area is narrow and a large DOF means
the focused area is wide.
A photo with a small DOF, which stresses the subject and makes the rest
of it blurred, can be obtained by capturing a photo close to the subject or
selecting a low aperture value. Conversely, a photo with a large DOF which
shows all the elements on the photo sharply focused can be achieved by
capturing a photo far from the subject or selecting a high aperture value.

Concepts in Photography
What controls out-of-focus effects?
DOF depends on focal length
The longer the focal length is, the lower the DOF gets.
DOF depends on aperture value
The wider the aperture is (namely the lower the aperture value), the lower
the DOF becomes. Under the condition where the focal length is equal, a
low aperture value leads to a photo with a low DOF.

Concepts in Photography
DOF depends on the distance between the subject and the
camera
The shorter the distance between the subject and the camera is, the lower
the DOF gets. Therefore, taking a photo close to a subject can result in a
photo of low DOF.

You can press the Custom button to get an idea of what your shot will look
like before shooting. The camera adjusts the aperture to the predefined
settings and shows the results on the screen. Set the function of the
Custom button to Optical Preview. (p. 151)

Composition
Using the rule of thirds will create photos with stable and compelling
compositions. Below are a few examples.
It is fun to capture a photo of the beauty of world with a camera. No
matter how the world is beautiful, however, a poor composition cannot
capture the beauty of it.
When it comes to composition, it is very important to prioritize subjects.
Composition in photography means arranging objects in a photo. Usually,
abiding by the rule of thirds leads to a good composition.
Rule of Thirds
To use the rule of thirds, divide the image into a 3x3 pattern of equal
rectangles.
To compose photos that best emphasize the subject, make sure the
subject is located at one of the corners of the center rectangle.
23
Concepts in Photography
Photos with two subjects
If your subject is in one corner of the photo, it creates an unbalanced
composition. You can stabilize the photo by capturing a second subject in
the opposite corner to balance the weight of the photo.
Subject 2
Subject 1
Subject 2
When taking landscape photos, centering the horizon will create an
unbalanced effect. Give more weight to the photo by moving the horizon
up or down.

Flash guide number
Flash
Light is one of the most important components in photography. It is not
easy, however, to have an enough amount of light anytime and anywhere.
Making use of a flash allows you to optimize light settings and create a
variety of effects.
Flash, also known as strobe or speed light, helps to create adequate
exposure in low-light conditions. It is also useful in light-abundant
situations. For example, flash can be used in compensating the exposure
of a subject’s shadow or capturing clearly both the subject and the
background in backlit conditions.
The model number of a flash refers to the flash’s power, and the maximum
amount of light created is represented by a value known as a "guide
number". The bigger the guide number, the more light is emitted from the
flash. The guide number is achieved by multiplying the distance from the
flash to the subject and the aperture value when the ISO sensitivity is set
to 100.
Guide number = Flash to Subject Distance X Aperture value
Aperture value = Guide number/Flash to Subject Distance
Flash to Subject Distance = Guide number/Aperture value
Therefore, if you know the guide number of a flash, you can estimate an
optimum flash to subject distance when setting the flash manually. For
example, if a flash has a guide number of GN 20 and is 4 meters away from
the subject, the optimal aperture value is F5.0.

‡ If you have the image stabilizer option on when shooting a movie, the
camera may record the image stabilizer sound.
‡ If you remove the camera lens while recording a movie, the recording will be
interrupted. Do not change the lens while recording.
‡ If you change the shooting angle of the camera suddenly while shooting a
movie, the camera may not be able to record images accurately. Use a tripod
to minimize camera shake.
‡ The camera supports only the Multi AF function when recording a video. You
cannot use any other focus area setting functions.
‡ When the size of a movie file exceeds 4 GB, the camera automatically stops
recording even if the maximum recording time (29 minutes and 59 seconds)
has not been reached.
‡ If you use a slow writing memory card, the recording of your movie can
be interrupted because the card cannot process data at the rate the video
is being shot. If this occurs, replace the card with a faster memory card or
reduce the video size (for example, from 1280X720 to 640X480).
‡ When formatting a memory card, always format using the camera. If you
format on another camera or a PC, you can lose files on the card or cause a
change in the capacity of the card.
‡ While recording a video in the same ISO sensitivity, the screen may be darker
than taking a photo. Adjust the ISO sensitivity.
‡ When you record a video in Program, Aperture Priority, or Shutter Priority
mode, ISO is automatically set to Auto.

Metering Metering
Shooting Functions >
The metering mode refers to the way in which a camera measures the
quantity of light.
The camera measures the amount of light in a scene, and in many of its
modes, uses the measurement to adjust various settings. For example,
if a subject looks darker than its actual color, the camera captures an
overexposed photo of it. If a subject looks lighter than its actual color, the
camera captures an underexposed photo of it.
Multi
The Multi mode calculates the amount of light in multiple areas. When
light is sufficient or insufficient, the camera adjusts the exposure by
averaging the overall brightness of the scene. This mode is suitable for
general photos.
The brightness and overall mood of the photo can also be affected by how
the camera measures the amount of light. Select an appropriate setting for
a shooting condition.
To set a metering
option,
In Shooting mode, press [m] ĺ b ĺ Metering ĺ an
option.
92
Shooting Functions >
Metering
Center-weighted
Spot
The Center-weighted mode calculates a broader area than the Spot mode
does. It sums up the amount of light in the center portion of the shot
(60–80%) and that of the rest of the shot (20–40%). It is recommended
for situations where there is a slight difference in brightness between a
subject and a background or an area of the subject is large compared to
the overall composition of the photo.
The Spot mode calculates the amount of light in the center. When you
capture a photo in conditions where there is a strong backlight behind a
subject, the camera adjusts the exposure so as to shoot a subject correctly.
For example, when you select the Multi mode in a strong backlight
condition, the camera calculates that the overall amount of light is
abundant, which results in a darker photo. The Spot mode can prevent this
situation as it calculates the amount of light in a designated area.
The subject is in bright color while the background is dark. The Spot mode
is recommended for a situation like this where a huge difference in the
exposure exists between a subject and a background.

Using Adobe Photoshop Lightroom
Photos captured by a camera are often transformed to JPEG formats and
stored in the memory according to the settings of the camera at the time
of shooting. RAW files are not transformed to JPEG formats and are stored
in the memory without any changes. With Adobe Photoshop Lightroom,
you can calibrate exposures, White Balances, tones, contrasts, and colors
of photos. You can also edit JPEG or TIFF files as well as RAW files. For more
information, refer to the program guide.
‡ Depending on your version of Adobe Photoshop Lightroom, you may not
be able to open RAW files. In this case, update the program from the Adobe
website.
‡ In Adobe Photoshop Lightroom, an image’s brightness, color and other effects
may be displayed differently. This occurs because the original camera settings
and options applied during image capture are removed, ready for it to be
processed in Adobe Photoshop Lightroom.

Appendix
Glossary
AP (Access Point)
AEL (Auto Exposure Lock)
An access point is a device that allows wireless devices to connect to a
wired network.
These features help you lock the exposure on which you want to calculate
the exposure.
Ad-Hoc network
AF (Auto Focus)
An ad-hoc network is a temporary connection for sharing files or an
internet connection and between computers and devices.
A system that automatically focuses the camera lens on the subject. Your
camera uses the contrast to focus automatically.
AdobeRGB
AMOLED (Active-matrix organic light-emitting diode)/
LCD (Liquid Crystal Display)
Adobe RGB is used for commercial printing and has a larger color range
than sRGB. Its wider range of colors helps you to easily edit photos on a
computer.
AMOLED is a visual display that is very thin and light, as it does not
need backlighting. LCD is a visual display commonly used in consumer
electronics. This display needs a separate backlight, such as CCFL or LED, to
reproduce colors.
AEB (Auto Exposure Bracket)
This feature automatically captures several images at different exposures
to help you capture a properly-exposed image.
Aperture
The aperture controls the amount of light that reaches the camera’s sensor.
186
Appendix >
Glossary
Camera shake (Blur)
Composition
If the camera is moved while the shutter is open, the entire image may
appear blurred. This occurs more often when the shutter speed is slow.
Prevent camera shake by raising the sensitivity, using the flash, or using
a faster shutter speed. Alternatively, use a tripod or the OIS function to
stabilize the camera.
Composition in photography means arranging objects in a photo. Usually,
abiding by the rule of thirds leads to a good composition.
Cloud Computing
DCF (Design rule for Camera File system)
A specification to define a file format and file system for digital cameras
created by the Japan Electronics and Information Technology Industries
Association (JEITA).
Cloud computing is a technology that allows you to store data on remote
servers and to use them from a device with internet access.
Depth of field
Color space
The range of colors that the camera can see.
The distance between the nearest and farthest points that can be
acceptably focused in a photograph. Depth of field varies with lens
aperture, focal length, and distance from the camera to the subject.
Selecting a smaller aperture, for example, will increase the depth of field
and blur the background of a composition.
Color temperature
Color Temperature is a measurement in degrees Kelvin (K) that indicates
the hue of a specific type of light source. As the color temperature
increases, the color of the light source has a more bluish quality. As the
color temperature decreases, the color of the light source has a more
reddish quality. At 5,500 degrees Kelvin, the color of the light source is
similar to the sun at midday.
187
Appendix >
Glossary
EV (Exposure Value)
Flash
All the combinations of the camera’s shutter speed and lens aperture that
result in the same exposure.
A speed light that helps to create adequate exposure in low-light
conditions.
EV Compensation
Focal length
This feature allows you to quickly adjust the exposure value measured by
the camera, in limited increments, to improve the exposure of your photos.
The distance from the middle of the lens to its focal point (in millimeters).
Longer focal lengths result in narrower angles of view and the subject is
magnified. Shorter focal lengths result in wider angles of view.
Exif (Exchangeable Image File Format)
A specification to define an image file format for digital cameras created by
the Japan Electronic Industries Development Association (JEIDA).
Exposure
The amount of light allowed to reach the camera’s sensor. Exposure is
controlled by a combination of the shutter speed, the aperture value, and
ISO sensitivity.
Histogram
A graphical representation of the brightness of an image. The horizontal
axis represents the brightness and the vertical axis represents the number
of pixels. High points at the left (too dark) and right (too bright) on the
histogram indicate a photo that is improperly exposed.
H.264/MPEG-4
A high-compression video format established by international standard
organizations ISO-IEC and ITU-T. This codec is capable of providing good
video quality at low bit rates developed by the Joint Video Team (JVT).
188
Appendix >
Glossary
Image sensor
Metering
The physical part of a digital camera that contains a photosite for each
pixel in the image. Each photosite records the brightness of the light that
strikes it during an exposure. Common sensor types are CCD (Chargecoupled Device) and CMOS (Complementary Metal Oxide Semiconductor).
The metering refers to the way in which the camera measures the quantity
of light to set the exposure.
MF (Manual Focus)
IP (Internet protocol) address
A system that manually focuses the camera lens on the subject.
You can use the focus ring to focus on a subject.
An IP address is a unique number that is assigned to every device that is
connected to the internet.
MJPEG (Motion JPEG)
ISO sensitivity
A video format which is compressed as a JPEG image.
The sensitivity of the camera to light, based on the equivalent film speed
used in a film camera. At higher ISO sensitivity settings, the camera uses a
higher shutter speed, which can reduce blur caused by camera shake and
low light. However, images with high sensitivity are more susceptible to
noise.
JPEG (Joint Photographic Experts Group)
A lossy method of compression for digital images. JPEG images are
compressed to reduce their overall file size with minimal deterioration of
the image resolution.
189
Appendix >
Glossary
Noise
PAL (Phase Alternate Line)
Misinterpreted pixels in a digital image that may appear as misplaced or
random, bright pixels. Noise usually occurs when photos are shot with a
high sensitivity or when a sensitivity is automatically set in a dark place.
A video color encoding standard used in numerous countries throughout
Africa, Asia, Europe, and the Middle East.
Quality
NFC (Near Field Communication)
NFC is a set of standards for radio communication at very close proximity.
You can use NFC-enabled devices to activate features or exchange data
with other devices.
An expression of the rate of compression used in a digital image. Higher
quality images have a lower rate of compression, which usually results in a
larger file size.
RAW (CCD raw data)
NTSC (National Television System Committee)
A video color encoding standard used most commonly in Japan, North
America, the Philippines, South America, South Korea, and Taiwan.
The original, unprocessed data, collected directly from the camera’s image
sensor. White Balance, contrast, saturation, sharpness, and other data can
be manipulated with editing software before the image is compressed into
a standard file format.
Optical zoom
This is a general zoom which can enlarge images with a lens and does not
deteriorate quality of images.
Resolution
The number of pixels present in a digital image. High resolution images
contain more pixels and typically show more detail than low resolution
images.
190
Appendix >
Glossary
Shutter speed
White Balance (Color balance)
Shutter speed refers to the amount of time it takes to open and close the
shutter, and it is an important factor in the brightness of a photo, as it
controls the amount of light which passes through the aperture before
it reaches the image sensor. A fast shutter speed allows less time to let
light in and the photo becomes darker and more easily freezes subjects in
motion.
An adjustment of the intensities of colors (typically the primary colors red,
green, and blue), in an image. The goal of adjusting the White Balance, or
color balance, is to correctly render the colors in an image.
sRGB (Standard RGB)
International standard of color space established by the IEC (International
Electrotechnical Commission). This is defined from color space for PC
monitors and is also used as the standard color space for Exif.
Wi-Fi
Wi-Fi is a technology that allows electronic devices to exchange data
wirelessly over a network.
WPS (Wi-Fi Protected Setup)
WPS is a technology that secures wireless home networks.
Vignetting
A reduction of an image’s brightness or saturation at the periphery (outer
edges) compared to the center of the image. Vignetting can draw interest
to subjects positioned in the center of an image.
