Crookwell town and region is a rural community of approximately 4000 people. The Crookwell District Community Trust (CDCT) is a charity organisation set up to help people living in, or with a connection too, the Crookwell district who have experienced extreme difficulities due to personal trauma or natural disasters. Past aid has gone to those in need of urgent medical assistance, those that have lost their homes due to fire, as well as assisting those that have experienced a death in the family and were unable to meet the furneral expenses.
The Trust has been in existence for approximtely ten years. To date the Trust has financed its assitance, to those in need, via private donations, with only the occassional fund raising event.
Due to the ongoing drought, as well as other economic pressures of living in rural Australia, members of the Trust have experienced a greater demand for assistance. To meet these demands the Trust now wishes to both lift its profile as well as gather more funds, through a charity art auction. Read moreNo comments
Most photography now days requires some level of post-production or retouching to acheive the optimum result for an image. Even in the days of film this was still the case, the only difference being the extra steps required before getting an image into the computer.

I know this topic is probably quite familiar for many of you out there, but I am sure there are many like my friend who recently told me that she always needs to read more on this topic because she still does not understand it fully.
To start off simply, there is a relationship between shutter speeds, aperture settings, and ISO settings (or film speed as it used to be known).
To begin with, the ISO setting indicates how sensitive to light the digital chip (or film) is that records your image in the back of your camera. The lower the number, the less sensitive the chip is, and so the more light will be required to achieve a proper exposure. For example, an ISO setting of 100 will require more light than a setting of 800.No comments
