What we will be learning over the next couple weeks is the exposure triangle which is made up of ISO, Aperture, and Shutter Speed.
Some definitions to give you a basic understanding.
Aperture is what lets so much light into your camera.
Shutter Speed controls the amount of time the shutter is open.
ISO is the amount of sensitivity to light.
Lower aperture is more light. Look at this weeks homework on next weeks post for some examples.
Take pictures of the same thing with different aperture and see how the picture changes. Record these changes. Don't look for very pretty picture composition (we will learn about composition later) just learn what the aperture does for the photo not caring about ISO and Shutter Speed just yet.
Homework from last week:
Effects: High Key
Effects: Night Vision
