We are all part of what is happening in the world right now: widespread shutdowns of schools, some work places, and the advice to continue social distancing. While none of this is to be taken lightly, we can also utilize this time to be productive in areas we may have been neglecting.
These next few weeks, I wil share videos that are brush-ups on the basics, tutorials that can help motivate you, and some good old fashioned art that can help inspire you. This is a great time for those stuck at home due to the school and event shutdowns to get better aquatinted with the hobby they are hoping to turn pro one day.
The first, of course, is learning your photography language. If you are unfamiliar with the terms tutorials use, this video by Practical Photography is a great way to fully understand what the pros are trying to teach you. While this may be great for beginners, it may even help some who have forgotten the basics as well. It is always a great exercise to brush up if some of the terms you do not use in everyday conversations. They explain the basic terms and then onto not so basic terms to help improve your photography vocabulary. These range from "aperture" to "rectilinear" and everything in-between. If you have any terms you want to add, feel free to mention them in the comment section below!
