Understanding Exposure

We went through what Aperture and Shutter Speed were, but now we're going to incorporate that into a picture. As you can recall Aperture is how open/closed you lens is and how much light it is allowing in, and Shutter Speed is how long your shutter is open, or how long it takes to take one picture. 

I was going to make a video that incorporates both the Aperture, Shutter Speed, and Exposure Meter but thanks to youtube, I happened to find a great video for you guys that explains everything.

I highly recommend watching this video, even at all levels of photography. He goes over Ap, SS, Exposure Meter, and  the Histogram.  

The Histogram helps you see what parts of your photo is under/over exposed and if your photo is properly balanced with the light.
