    let’s redefine “low cost”…2.8 for any length long enough to get a picture

    Everyone always talks about ISO, aperture and Shutter, but no-one touches
    on metering modes. They can drastically effect the above settings.

    00:27 “Let me guess, you just bought a brand new DSLR….” loool…that’s

    Awesome video. You really can tell the difference between a professional
    and an amateur just by looking at their low-lighting photographs. Anyone
    can shoot in broad daylight with a cheap camera and lens, but it takes a
    true expert to take a good picture in low-lighting conditions.

    you say shoot in B&W? just curious to how this would change anything when
    you can change to it in lightroom. does it pick up more dynamic range
    somehow in B&W mode?

    I can’t afford an expensive lens so I just picked up a older 50mm prime 1.8
    but I can only use it in manual mode, so everything is set by me and I can
    say I have learned SO MUCH by being forced to do it on my own. I was lost
    before this and couldn’t figure out why I wasn’t getting the look I wanted
    in auto mode! Now my shots are way more professional!

  16. Paul Hale says:

    amazing stuff!

  21. Kris Kasprzak says:

    shooting in b/w *may* not affect image quality, however some cameras
    struggle with recording colors namely red in low light, using b/w may mask
    some of the artifacting. I sometimes use b/w just for the artistic value,
    but this can always be converted in post.

  22. John Zander says:

    Fantastic. So much great information. Thank you!

  23. TheGabesnell says:
