Monday’s Camera Tip: Exposure Triangle

Understanding Exposure Triangle

Unlike human eyes, cameras need a certain amount of light to capture images. The exposure triangle controls a photographer’s right to set the correct exposure.

What is Exposure Triangle?

The exposure triangle consists of the following:

1- ISO, which is the sensitivity to light. The higher the number, the more sensitive to light. It means you need to increase the ISO in low-light conditions. 

2- Shutter Speed is the duration of light. It means you control how long the light can expose the camera’s sensor. 

3- The aperture is built into the lens and controls the amount of light. It is the opening in the centre of the lens. The wider the hole, the more light passes through. 

How to use the exposure triangle?

As a photographer, you need the determine what you need to capture the image. For instance, do you need a fast shutter speed to freeze the action? Or do you need an expanded focus range? You can set the ISO for correct exposure by setting up these parameters first.
