How Lens Diaphragm Blades Control the Aperture (Video)


I setup the Lightbox today to make a quick video on how the diaphragm blades control the amount of light allowed through to the sensor (or film) inside the camera. This is to be part of my Digital Photography Fundamentals Workshop.

If you are interested, the video can be seen below and please subscribe to my YouTube Channel (if it doesn’t subscribe you automatically, click the SUBSCRIBE button on my Channel).

Coming Soon – Photography Workshops, free places will be available!

Photography Workshops

You may have noticed a new option in the menu taking you to a new page, Photography Workshops.

All the information you need (for now) is in the page, but in a nutshell, I’m planning 1 day Photography Workshops up here in the hills of the Algarve. These small-sized attendee workshops will teach the basics of photography along with a more advanced workshop coming further down the road.

The workshops will be a mixture of classroom theory and practical sessions. They are being planned to be as hands-on as possible including getting around the village (São Marcos da Serra) practising.

[Update to below] This post was before the workshops became active, therefore, the free sessions are no longer available.

Before I launch the workshops, I’ll need to run one, possibly two, test workshops to confirm timings and content. These will be offered free-of-charge, if you are interested in attending one of these “Beta” workshops, then please register your interest by Contacting Me (first-come, first served).
