“Exposure” and “Stop” Explained:
In Part I of “The Exposure Triangle” (see that article here) we established the essential definitions of Aperture (f-number), Shutter Speed, and ISO.
But, two vitally important questions must be answered if we want to gain complete control over our camera’s settings: 1) What is the “exposure“ of a photograph, and 2) How do we measure what happens to exposure when you raise or lower Aperture, Shutter Speed, and ISO? (more…)
Are you one of the many photographers who prefer to shoot in fully automatic mode, but are curious about learning how to manually control your camera’s settings? If you are, then learning about The Exposure Triangle is an essential piece to the puzzle.
If you’ve been to my website previously, this shot may look somewhat familiar. The road depicted here is in Hunt Valley, Maryland, adjacent to the north side of Shawan Road, just east of The Oregon Grille restaurant. Every fall, I head over to the road and photograph the foliage. The above photograph was taken this morning.
