it is impossible to give a definitive answer to the question. What is an acceptable eso value? And that's for several reasons. Firstly, what there is a standard for the way I also responds to light in terms of exposure. There is no similar standard for how the sense of processes the data it receives. This means in relation to wire, so no one bottle or brand of camera is guaranteed to manage noise in a consistent way. In other words, what is an acceptable I also value partly depends on the camera you're using. Secondly, because ESO is one of free exposure variables, it cannot be considered in isolation in practical terms and acceptable. Eso is the one you need to achieve the composition you want and finally, like the J peg versus raw debate, it depends in part on what you plan to do with the images you make. For instance, an image on the Internet will appear much cleaner because it's been shrunk from its native size to a point where the noise pixel, the so small you can't see them. Howe...
ver, that same image, printed twice its native size for wall hanging, were so far more noise because the noisy pixels have bean enlarged. So at the risk of repeating myself, which means this is a really important point on acceptable eso is the lowest setting you need to get the lens aperture and shutter speed you want.
What a marvelous course! What a marvelous teacher!
When I went to college, my father would always ask me about my professors, more than the courses themselves. He was passionate about learning and although too busy with earning an income to go beyond an undergrad degree, continued to read 50 books a year. I still remember how he'd get almost visibly excited when I'd tell him about some special professor who taught with such enthusiasm and, more than just passion, evident delight and joy in the subject.
'Ah they're the best, son. How wonderful you have such a teacher."
Well, he passed away decades ago but if he were still around I'd get a kick out of telling him about Chris Weston, the 'Prof' of this course. He's one of the very special ones: a teacher who's loved and lived his vocation--his avocation--since he was a boy--and still is as excited about it now as he was then.
The result: a course that seems to be more a labor of love--of pouring far more energy and thought into the details then one typically finds in these courses--than anything else.
Bravo Chris! I'm already on to your next one.
Chris is an amazing instructor who dissects theory giving amazing analogies that bring concepts to life. I have rarely been able to sit through most video course for more than a half-hour but watched this one from beginning to end. A good refresher course if you've been away from the camera for awhile or there are some concepts that still illude you. I highly recommend this course and look forward to watching his others. Thank you for the clarity and great explanations.
This was an amazing class. I have looked at a number of basic photography classes. This one was by far the best I have seen. Chris is an exceptional teacher. He breaks things down into digestible information and then inspires you to be creative. Thank you!
