In this article I will cover camera exposure. This is the cornerstone of photography. You get it right and your photos will look amazing as long as composition catches your interest. I will cover composition in a new post soon.
Exposure requires a very delicate camera setting. It involves ISO, Aperture and Shutter Speed. As long as you shoot in manual mode, you have to think to all three of them.
I won’t dig into each of them today as the aim of this article is just to give you a quick reference guide on how each of them work, in which situations you may want to increase ISO rather than open the diaphragm. The creative effects you get by using a low shutter speed (aka long exposure).
I managed to get into a slide the key points you should look at when out shooting, which is the real purpose of this post. Get the doc, print it and go out shooting!
If you want a soft copy of it, just subscribe to my blog and I will send it to your email address as soon as reasonably possible.
Enjoy your camera and shoot!
