Camera Works: The Podcast

My podcast Subject:

My podcast is a short introduction to the basic elements of a camera, including: Shutter speed, Aperture, and ISO. These elements work in harmony to create strong images and it is good to have an understanding about how each work.

My Process:

For this podcast I used SoundTrap to record and edit my audio files. I also used Bensound to select my free music download, and for the camera noise that clicks between each audio track I used Pixabay.

Source to prove information is factual:

Here is a link to Understanding ISO, Shutter Speed and Aperture – A Beginner’s Guide.

This is a comprehensive understanding of what I briefly cover in my podcast. This source is credible as it comes from photography educator Nasim Mansurov, who is one of the founders of Photography Life.

Transcript of my Audio:

Hello hello everyone, I am your host Kelsey and today we will be briefly discussing the Shutter speed, Aperture, and ISO of your Camera.

So, What is Shutter Speed?

The Shutter speed is the speed at which your camera shutter opens and closes. A fast shutter speed creates a short exposure and freezes an image. While a slow shutter speed can give you a long exposure and blur and emphasize the movement in your image. 

And What is Aperture?

Aperture refers to the lens’s built-in hole that can be adjusted for a greater or smaller depth of field. Think of it as a way of controlling the light through the lens.

A lower aperture will result in a lower depth of field and a blurred background, but will allow you to capture more light. Higher apertures will result in more depth of field and a sharper background but will block the light. 

And lastly, What is ISO?

ISO relates to the sensor in your camera. This records the light as the shutter opens and closes. Increasing the ISO makes it more sensitive to light and your image is brighter, while reducing it makes your image darker as it is less sensitive to light.

And that’s all folks! Go out and shoot some images!
