How It Works

  • Shutter Speed
  • Aperture
  • ISO

 

Different Shutter Speeds

1/2/4/8/15/30/60/125/250/500/1000/2000

Don’t go below 60 when hand holding

Smaller number, longer shutter speed -> lets in more light

Larger number, shorter shutter speed -> lets in less light

 

Aperture

2/2.8/4/5.6/8/11/16/22

Smaller numbers let in most light

Larger numbers let in least light

 

If you have less light with the aperture you need more light with the shutter speed

 

ISO

ISO = International Standardization Organisation

50/100/200/400/800/1600

Light sensitivity of the film

Smaller numbers = not very sensitive to light

Larger numbers = very sensitive to light
