Have a look at Harvey Norman’s range of cameras, then familiarise yourself with this list of essential photography terms brought to you by the printpix Photography Series – you’ll be speaking like a pro photographer in no time:
- Aperture – The hole inside the camera lens that lets light through.
- Depth of field – The part of a scene that’s in focus in the photograph.
- Exposure – It’ defined by three things: (1) The period of time that the sensor is exposed to light; (2) The aperture setting which controls how much light is allowed through the lens; and (3) The sensitivity setting of the sensor (i.e. ISO100 is less sensitive than ISO 400).
- Flash – Produces artificial light to illuminate a scene. It can be built into the camera or an external attachment.
- ISO – Represents how sensitive the image sensor is to the amount of light present.
- Shutter blades – This is the “curtain” behind the lens and in front of the sensor. The shutter determined the actual exposure time.
- Zoom – Lets you “zoom in” for a close-up or “zoom out” for a wide-angle view of your subject.
