Join Scott and RC as they outline who this class is for and why exposure is so important.
When a photo is too dark it is considered underexposed, and when a photo is too bright is considered overexposed. Learn why this is a problem and how to get the correct exposure.
The aperture setting controls how much of the photo is in focus, which is called the depth of field.
The ISO setting controls how sensitive the sensor is to light. The higher the ISO setting the more sensitive the sensor is to light.
In manual mode you are in control of setting the shutter speed, aperture, and ISO to get the correct exposure.
Aperture priority mode is probably the most popular mode used on DSLRs because it allows you to stay in control of depth of field. You can still influence the exposure setting by using exposure compensation.
The metering mode you choose will affect how the camera uses the information in the scene to determine the correct exposure.
Scott and RC close out the class with a discussion of where to go next in your path to learning more about photography.
