If you're new to photography, you were probably recently excited to start learning how to create gorgeous images when you were suddenly blindsided by a veritable bevy of technical terms. This great video will introduce you to 25 terms you should know and give helpful explanations for each of them.
Coming to you from Apalapse, this helpful video details 25 common and useful terms that you'll hear over and over in photography. I've always enjoyed photography because it marries both a technical, scientifically oriented craft with artistry, but I do remember feeling a smidgen overwhelmed at first when I was trying to understand how all those funky-sounding terms impacted my work with the camera. Once you start to master the terms, though, you'll realize that they're not just jargon, but rather things that are closely tied to producing the best possible images from your camera. One thing to note: while the video mentions that turning up ISO is in principle the same as ramping up the exposure slider in Lightroom, it's important to remember that for most cameras, that is only in principle. You'll get better image quality if you nail the exposure (including ISO) when you take the shot rather than compensating in post-production.
