Understanding the ISO on your camera.

Nick Knight
Welcome to the 13th edition.

This weeks tutorial is understanding the ISO. How you can use it to get the look you want. The pdf is below.

Nick Knight one of the worlds' leading photographers is always at the cutting edge of his profession and  produces breath taking photographs. With many awards for  editorial and fashion work he always pushes the creative boundaries.

When I had a look at his website this week it reminded me of his genius. Nick's first book 'Skinhead' is particularly relevant now with Channel 4 showing 'This is England'  which is set just after his book was published. The girtty quality the book has is a thing of the past replaced by digital which is smooth and clean.
At the millennium, was launched. Using the latest technology brought the secret world of fashion to your desktop. You can be in the studio with Nick Knight via a webcam. As part of the online audience you are encouraged to make suggestions and share ideas.

This week I started as a volunteer at Zoom In which is a non profit photography darkroom in  London. They are really enthusiastic and if you want to get involved and hangout with like minded people than it could be the place for you. Photography is best shared with others and is a great way to get feedback on your work. I did some printing while I was there. It was exciting watching the print develop in the tray. The Zoom darkroom is a very soothing place. The running water sounds like a gentle waterfall and is very calming and atmospheric.
I like things that have to do with what is real, elegant, well presented and without excessive style. In other words, just fine observetion. -Elliott Erwitt
