Zoom Only Meeting – Bruce Herwig

We will be diving into two essential concepts in photography: the exposure triangle and the histogram. Understanding these concepts will help you take better photos and have more control over your camera settings.

The exposure triangle is made up of three elements: aperture, shutter speed, and ISO. These three elements work together to determine the amount of light that enters the camera and hits the camera sensor, affecting the brightness and sharpness of your photo. 

The histogram is a graphical representation of the exposure of your photo. It displays the distribution of brightness values in your image, from pure black on the left to pure white on the right. Understanding how to read the histogram will help you adjust your camera settings to capture the best possible exposure for your photo.

By the time we are done, you will have a better understanding of how to change the settings on your camera to achieve proper exposure.
