Project Description

Get yourself a light meter and start taking readings of light as you go along. Use the same ISO and Aperture and see how the shutter speed changes. Or use the same Shutter Speed and ISO and see what kind of Aperture you need in in certain situations. Learning about light is all about being able to read lighting situations, so the best thing you can do is go out and practice, practice and practice!
