What is Exposure?How dark or bright the image is.

ApertureShutter SpeedExposure TriangleISO

Exposure Triangle

ApertureSimilar to the iris of the eye.

Opening and closing of the lens.

Wide opening = more light = bright photo

Narrow opening = less light = dark photo

F-stop numberAperture represented by F-stop number.

Range from f/1.4 f/32

F-stop 1 Opening of lens

f/1.4 = wide aperture

f/32 = narrow aperture

Depth of Field (DoF)

Area of the image that appears sharp

Understanding DoFSmall f-stop = wide aperture = more light = bright image = SHALLOW DEPTH OF FIELD

Large f-stop = narrow aperture = less light = dark image = DEEP DEPTH OF FIELD

Understanding DoF
