Guide to Stock - Part I by AttempteStock Guide to Stock - Part I by AttempteStock
full title: "A Guide to Taking Good Quality, High Resolution Stock photographs - Part I - All About Cameras"
In this tutorial I'll explain tons of stuff. Aperture, Shutter Speed, ISO, focus, mega pixels, self-timers, etc.

(This is made for figure stock artists, but all sorts of stockers and beginning photographers can learn from this)

Full-view (zoom in) to see the actual tutorial. WARNING: Very large image! There's a somewhat printable version here: [link]

edit: Oh gods! I just signed on quick before I had to go to work and wasn't able to say thanks (no time), but now I'm back.. and wow! :faint: Another DD! Thanks so so much to `thespook for suggesting and ^bleedsopretty for featuring it.. :blushes:

And thanks to you for looking. :glomp:

I have used camera symbols belonging to well... I've seen a few companies use them (Canon, Nikon, Pentax). But I've used them for educational purposes only. No copyright infringement is intended. Please oh please don't report me, I certainly don't make any money off of this.

OMG thank you. I've been trying to use my new camera for stock, but it's impossible to find a simple guide to f-stop and aperture and all the other settings my old point and shoot never had.
If you ever have the time to make another tutorial, a lighting one would be greatly appreciated!

Is there any reason why we should avoid manual zoom?

This tutorial was soooo helpful o/ I took a graphics class and dabbled in ISO and aperture and stuff in that class, but with my digital camera I've stuck with more automated modes... But this tutorial is very good at explaining all the terms I had trouble learning before :D
