Thought I’d start sharing some photography educational tips for all you beginners out there.  Let’s start with the basics!

Exposure is how much light reaches your camera’s sensor (or film if you are old school!).  An image that is overexposed means too much light reached the sensor, and if an image is underexposed there was too little light.  You can control the amount of light by using the shutter speed, aperture, and ISO, which are the three factors that affect exposure, or the Exposure Triangle.

Here’s a graphic to show you the basics of each of these three factors.  I’ll expand on each, one at a time, in future posts.  Any questions so far?
