Manual controls.... aperture, shutter speed, iso- the three things that control exposure Aperture- means opening of the lens that controls that amount of light that hits the lens -f/2.8, f/28-the smaller the number the larger the aperture, -the larger the hole the more light comes through -smaller aperture=more depth of field -depth of field, F/22 small aperture allows the background to be more crisp - f/2.8 has a large aperture allows for focus on your subject that close to you and blurs the background -standard numbers: F1.4, F2, F2.8, F4, F5.6, F8, F11, F16, F22, F32, etc... -these are all stops and each stop doubles the amount of lights if there are stops between like F5.6 and F8 if there are 3 numbers it would be 1/3 of a stops. -typically the sharpest image is somewhere in the middle with the aperture -if you're shooting something like on a table then use the lens with less depth of field Shutter Speed: -The longer the shutter is open the more light you let in. -Standard numbers is 1s, 1/2, 1/4, 1/8, 1/15, 1/30, 1/60, 1/125, 1/250, 1/500s, 1/1000 -Rule of thumb make sure that the denominator is larger than the lens size like 18mm lens 1/30 should be fine. -Equivalence-Different combinations of aperture and shutter speed can result in the same exposure -Equivalents 1/15 1/30 1/60 1/125 1/250 Ff22 f16 f11 f8 f5.6 ISO-The sensor's sensitivity to light: its volume knob -Higher ISO= more light= more noise -Rough guidelines for consumer cameras -Print: ISO less than or equal to 200-400 (approximately) he said ignore these they are extremely generic -Digital/web: Iso less than or equal to 800-1600 (approximately) aspect ratio, quality, white balance Histogram is an accurate measurement of light White Balance: The camera needs to know what color the light is to balance out the colors -Lower number mean warmer or negative colors Aspect Ratio-the camera shoots 3:2
