In photography, “stop” or “step” is a fairly common concept, but many people misunderstand it, many are afraid because it sounds complicated. In fact, “stop” is very simple.
Changing the exposure to a stop (or one step) means doubling (decreasing or halving) the amount of light that enters the lens.
For example, if you hear that you needed to increase exposure by 1 step, it means that you had to capture Continue reading
What is multiple exposure? This is a combination of two or more frames into one. The method of photography, which began with an error and became widespread over time among photographers, is used to create contemporary art photography.
In this quick guide, we will explain how to properly use the multiple exposure effect and what if the camera does not support the double exposure function?
When using film cameras, the occurrence of double exposure most often occurred due to the negligence of the photographer, which led to a double exposure to the same piece of film. But the undoubted artistry of some frames accidentally received led to the fact that the most eminent photographers began to develop the direction of the multi-exposure in photography and used it with confidence. For example, Sarah Moon.
Some modern digital cameras feature dual or more exposure. To create a multi-photo, just switch in the Continue reading

One of the first things you come across in photography is F-stop (from focal length “focal length”). It, as a measurement of the lens, is an important part of the exposure, like the T-stop (from the English transmission – “transmission”). We suggest you familiarize yourself with the article by professional photographer Gabor Holtzer in which he explains on the fingers the differences between T-stop and F-stop.
What does F-stop mean?
Each lens has an entrance pupil. The entrance pupil is that part of the lens where the diaphragm is located (and not the front of the lens). Its diameter is usually slightly less than the diameter of the front glass element. Continue reading
