About This Class

You're a photographer and you want to learn how to shoot with the manual settings of your camera. Getting proper exposure is one of the trickiest things to do when you stop using the auto feature. Getting perfect exposure comes down to two things: 1) how much light is hitting your subject and 2) how your camera controls the amount of light being captured.

This course teaches you how to use your camera’s aperture, shutter speed, and ISO to get perfect exposure every time. This ‘exposure triangle’ is one of the first steps to taking better photos on your own.

great for Bigeners
Very clear and non-confusing.
Great idea to break this content out of the larger Master class. I believe it will be extremely useful for a beginner and help folks move away from the auto settings and explore their creativity
