Now I'am sure the pros knows what every one of them mean but take somebody new to photography and it will make their heads spin (know it makes mine spin) a new guy reads all the threads trying to grasp something about photography only to have to try to figure out what looks like a chemistry chart. I have had links recommended to me only to confuse me even more, take a link for a lens and now it looks like Mensa math class.
I guess it is right, take tons of pictures, decipher the code above and keep repeating, this is what I did and finally have about 80% of the cameras features figured out, the exposure triangle maybe 25% figured out, correct me if I am wrong, sunny out doors ISO 100, indoors ISO 800 or more, Shutter Speed faster to stop motion, slower to capture motion blur, f 1.8 be close to the subject or their nose will only be in the DOF (sorry Depth of Field), f 8 to make sure your subject is in full DOF at ten feet away, f 22 to add even more DOF, after trying to decipher all the code I downloaded apps to play with over and over to get a visual of what all the SS's,ISO's and F/stops had in common, it makes a little more sense seeing them interact with each other. Before I bought a flash/light meter (have only used it indoor so far) most every picture I loaded in Lightroom4 was on the dark side, now with the meter, pictures in LR4 are a lot more balanced out, Got me to thinking, I should have got a meter sooner so it could figure out all the abbreviated code talk for me.
Let's say 3 or 4 years later with more practice I am able to hang in there with the pros , I'm sure if I decide to help somebody that is new, I will have forgotten the learning process because the memory bank of the mind doesn't need this info anymore and it deletes it, which would leave me thinking that the new guy knows the abbreviated words, etc. and history would repeat it's self for a new guy starting photography.
