Pratheek,

You could try answering some of these early questions with Google searches or Wikipedia.  Then, after some practical experience,  asking some more refined questions.

 

If in doubt about how to describe yourself on a forum like this,  try "student" or "other".

Seems to be, given the other questions being asked in other threads

 

Google is your friend in this case.

 

If on a course, either buying or getting one the many books from the library will give you handy references. Use forums for follow up questions.

Depth of Field is the amount of area[field] in the image that is in acceptable focus. Something like that.

Why should they bother?  Sooner or later as just witnessed in this thread, someone will answer their question, no matter how basic.   The OP has their occupation listed as Cinematographer, really??  I wanted to list my occupation as: Designer of Interstellar Space Vehicles, but that wasn't an available choice.
