Shutters speed, aperture, ISO;…hopefully by now you understand that these perimeters are what exposure is.…You manipulate these three things in concert to control motion blur, depth of…field, tonality, and to ensure sharp shooting.…How much motion blur or depth of field or tonality is up to you.…But there's really nothing more to exposure than these three values.…You have also learned that your light meter makes it easier to choose values…that are right for your scene.…Your camera provides you with a lot of different ways of controlling…your exposure settings.…
But really whether you are in full auto mode, program mode, shutter…priority, aperture priority, whether you are regularly using program shift…and exposure compensation,…however you are shooting, none of those controls change the fact that all you…are doing is choosing three interrelated exposure values.…So far, you have seen how you can let the camera choose those values for you in…auto and program mode,…how you can take control of either aperture or shutter speed in the…
