Shot discipline
3 months ago

I have been encouraged to learn more about this in order to better my skills. This includes such topics as focus, technique, aperture choice (95% of the time I shoot wide open. I guess I've subscribed to the theory that if you paid that much for a lens to shoot at 1.4; why would you shoot it at f8? I'm sure that's something I need to think about), field curvature, understanding each lens, etc. I'm not sure if I'm supposed to know the MTF charts for each lens I have, but I could see where that might benefit me. Anyway,....any books, videos, websites, y'all might suggest would be very greatly appreciated.

my best,

Steve
