I guess you are a more hands-on person. Get someone to go shooting with you and let them show you in person

So you googled "what is shutter speed" and did not understand? It's as basic as "how long light is allowed to hit the sensor". It's covered in extremely basic detail with sample videos too.

I'm sorry, but if after the basic videos, and the ability to try it on your camera, you still don't understand... i'm really not sure how far you can go in a field where you can't grasp the basics. Maybe just stick to "auto" mode.

Doesn't canon offer a DSLR fundamentals workshop for free with a DSLR purchase? If yes, you should attend.

I seriously don't believe that you've read ALL the sticky threads and still cannot understand the basic fundamentals.
Have you read:

Photography Notes For Newbies

or this?
Photography Basics Blog - What is ISO? Aperture?

TRY HARDER :)

A DSLR would be there to take your photography to the next level - but it also assumes you either already have an understanding of the basics, or have the ability to understand the basics. The numerous guides available on here are as basic as it gets, and usually also have accompanying videos and images / examples.

if you still can't understand what even shutter speed is after all that, then maybe you don't have a knack for it. Try shooting and experimenting instead, see what happens as you change the settings.

maybe TS can consider forking out some money and paying someone to teach him on a 1-to-1 basis...? :dunno:

After all, as a society we seem ever willing to pay huge sums of money to learn something (driving lessons, tuition, enrichment classes, piano lessons, etc), so why should photography be any different? ;)

thanks understood view everything basically understood that if there are moving object must have high shutter speed,if u want to focus an object with background full of toys f/small number instead of f/big number will do as for ISO is that that higher the grainier however a smaller ISO looks better on a tripod and meter i shall leave it neutral

am i right???

You are correct about the effects of the 3, but you need to understand *why* they cause that effect.

1) faster shutter speed for moving objects correct.
2) smaller f number to blur out the toys in the background but the toy that's in the front is still sharp and in focus.
3) ISO controls the sensitivity of the Sensor. using a higher ISO allows for faster shutter speeds as well as ability to capture shots under low light conditions. the higher the ISO that you use, you introduce noise into the picture.

you're almost there with understanding the basics. keep it up! :D

1)the smaller my shutter speed the amount of light is let in
For example,if i were to take a picture,a big aperture like f/22 will have a full view and focus of the whole scene where if a f1.2 aperture i can only have a sall area of focus maybe in the front or back right??

2)Shutter Speed-A fast shutter speed gives me a image that is moving instead of a blurred one for smaller shutter like 1/15 the image will be blur
Foe example i want to ake a picture of a human cheetah i will have to use my maximum shutter speed right?

3)the higher the ISO the more the aount of light can enter the image but it comes with a noisy pixels right?


Let me know if i am wrong thanks a lot for the time!!

Just read THIS that explains aperture.
If you can say that f/22 is a big aperture, means you don't understand the post?
siao liao la :hung:
