Shutter speed, also known as exposure time, refers to the length of time your camera’s shutter remains open, allowing light to hit the camera sensor. In simpler terms, it’s how long your camera spends capturing a photo. Understanding shutter speed is crucial because it affects both exposure and motion in your images.

How Shutter Speed Works:

  1. Motion Blur:
  2. Freezing Motion:

How to Set Shutter Speed:

  • Most cameras allow you to manually adjust shutter speed.
  • Use the shutter priority mode (Tv or S) to set the desired shutter speed, and the camera will automatically adjust the aperture for proper exposure.
  • Experiment with different speeds to achieve the desired creative effect.

Recommended Shutter Speed Settings:

  1. Handheld Photography:
  2. Freezing Action:
  3. Creative Blur:

Shutter Speed and Image Quality:

  • Keep in mind that extremely long shutter speeds (several seconds or more) can introduce noise due to sensor heat.
  • Use a tripod for stability during long exposures.

 ISO (International Standards Organization) in photography refers to the sensitivity of your camera’s sensor to light. It is one of the three essential elements of the exposure triangle, along with aperture and shutter speed. Let’s dive deeper into what ISO means and how it impacts your photography:

  1. What is ISO?
  2. Common ISO Values:
  3. Base ISO:
  4. Trade-Offs:

F-stop, also known as the f-number, is a fundamental setting on your camera lens.

  • It represents the ratio of the lens’s focal length to the diameter of the entrance pupil (the opening through which light enters the lens).
  • In simpler terms, the F-stop is the number displayed on your camera when you adjust the size of the lens aperture.

How Does F-Stop Work?

  1. Brightness Control:
  2. Depth of Field (DOF):
