I came across a link to this neat online photography educational tool while visiting the Carolinas Nature Photography Association’s member forums. If you’re somewhat new to photography or are used to point and shoot cameras rather than the Single Lens Reflex (SLR) cameras that the pros use this is a wonderful learning tool. By adjusting camera mode (aperature priority, shutter priority or manual modes)and/or adjusting the various settings then clicking with your mouse you can see how your selections affect the final photo. It’s a great tool for learing the relationships between shutter speed, aperature, and ISO. You can even choose to “use a tripod” and see how that affects the image. I’d highly recommend this for novice photographers, use in photography classes and for anyone struggling with these relationships. The best part, it’s free! Visit the Camera Simulator here.
