Parallax Explained

The Parallax Effect is phenomena that can spoil your photographs, but what is it exactly and can it be overcome? In my latest short video I hope to answer these questions. It does not affect Single Lens Reflex (SLR) cameras as we are looking through the taking lens. But with point and shoot and other types of camera, we don’t always see what the camera sees. If our point of focus is relatively close, this can mean a missed opportunity. Luckily most manufacturers have our back.

This week my YoutTube channel reached over 300 subscribers and over 50,000 views which is absolutely mind-blowing to me. A huge thank you to all of you.

An Introduction to Lenses

Camera lenses can be a confusing subject and so I thought that a “lenses for beginners”, an introduction to lenses might be useful. There are way too many types of lens to cover in one video. I therefore concentrate on just two types. Prime lenses and zoom lenses. I explain the meaning of the terms focal length, aperture and depth of field.

Perhaps if this proves popular, I can produce a part two a some time in the future. But for now I hope that this will demystify things a little for the photographic beginner. Please let me know in the comments.
