Notes:

Exposure

– The light meter is different from the exposure setting.

– Positive numbers on your exposure setting will make your photos brighter.

– Negative numbers make your photos darker.

Aperture

– Small numbers (like f/1.4) have larger openings, which let in more light.

– Big numbers (like f/16) have smaller openings, which let in less light.

Shutter Speed

– Seeing 100, 250, 320, etc. on your viewfinder means 1/(number seen).

– Try not to use 1/60 or less when handheld, use a tripod or look for something steady.

– Using longer exposure (slow shutter speed) will let in more light.

– Using shorter exposure (fast shutter speed) will let in less light.

ISO

– ISO is the sensitivity of your camera to light

– Lower numbers are less sensitive to light, which give smoother photos.

– Higher numbers are very sensitive to light, which give very grainy and noisy photos.
