DSLR Photography - What is Aperture, Shutter Speed and ISO?

DSLR photography tutorials What is Aperture Shutter Speed and ISO

I grew up people wanting to take a photo of me or with me, even in my family. My Daddy also has his own SLR camera, yes not the digital one, the film one! And I still have it even though he’s gone.

When I was little, I really don’t like it when people drag me to take a photo with them (yes, I was that cute) but then of course when you’re a teenager you love taking every moment of your life - I guess that’s why selfie and Instagram is a total hit! With it, anyone can be a photographer in an instant and everyone can totally level up their photos with some (at least) photography tutorials that they could look up online, and there are a lot on YouTube.

Where I am going with this is that, I’ve been in love and with Photography but I was not born as a skilled photographer and must find my own ways to at least bring or make it out of me through taking seminars or at least watching YouTube photography tutorials videos. Especially that just last month I was hired to be one of the ambassadors of a travel website wherein I have to go to places here in Cebu Philippines (or the neighboring islands, or probably all over the Philippines) to take photos in behalf of the company.

Ah! Yes, I do (kinda) have a DSLR but I just take decent photos for my blog. Not that something that will blow your mind kind of photo. So I really want to harness my skills through learning what I should know about the camera to be able to at least impress my readers with my photos and of course, my new found job and bosses.

What are Aperture, Shutter Speed and ISO?

So to those who are struggling with learning about their DSLR cameras, here I found a must know about your camera. Honestly, before watching this video my friends who are really good at photography have already taught me in person during an event but this explanation also gives me a clearer thought about how to do this.

Check out this video of Nico Mojica of CamCrunch.com explaining the aperture, shutter speed and ISO which is a must know if you want to make or level up your basic point and shoot photography – or your style of taking a picture even with DSLRs.


The video above is totally detailed photography tutorial and also newbie friendly, which I really like and most of the people who viewed it also loved it. And what's great on Nico's video is that he have samples, we can't imagine the effects so some samples it's totally great to have someone to give you an example.

There are a lot of tutorials that you can find online and especially some digital photography tips, but if you’re really serious with improving your photography skills then maybe a photography school or classes will be able to help you with it.

I’ll try to update you guys every now and then with some must share photography tutorials especially photography tutorials for beginners, newbie friendly tutorials that you won’t have any headache listening to their technical terms – because that’s what I am also looking for. Yes, there’re still terms that are too technical terms for me.

There are a lot more coming on photography tips and photography tutorials coming up here at the Bloggers Tech blog and more other topics to cover for you guys, but I’m having trouble in creating videos myself so let’s share others awesome videos for us to learn from.
