Single Picture Explains How Aperture, Shutter Speed, And ISO Work In Photography

Ever wondered what you could do to make your photographs look that bit better? With all of the various settings on a DSLR camera it should be easy to get that professional looking photo for every type of situation. The fact there are so many settings could eb the problem, with many of us getting confused as to what does what.

Luckily this helpful exposure chart created by Daniel Peters aims to guide people through what each setting does. The chart is split into three categories, with explanations as to how they will affect your photos.

The first is the ISO which is the camera sensors sensitivity to light. The aperture is a section of the lens, which can best be compared to the iris in a person’s eye. It works in many different ways, such as letting in certain amounts of light, changing the depth of field, along with the amount of objects that can fit into focus at the same time. The final section of the chart is shutter speed, which involves the length of time the shutter will be open for when photographing. A shorter shutter speed lets in less light, with longer ones letting in more.

Following these simple charts can help you to use the settings on your camera to great effect, and will have you snapping up some professional looking photos in no time. You can download Peters’ chart here.
