Transcript of Camera (Aperture, Shutter Speed, ISO)

Shutter Speed
Aperture, Shutter Speed, ISO
controls the amount of time during what light reaches the sensor
Measures in the fraction of a second
Shutter Speed
1/60 1/125 1/13

2" 1"
The faster the shutter speed,
the sharper a moving subject will be
Shutter Speed
Controls the amount of the light
that reaches the sensor
The size of an aperture is indicated by its
f-number or f-stop
The smaller the aperture size,
the more of a scene will be sharp from near to far
Depth of Field
