Exposing our photographs properly is the first step to producing worthwhile images.
Learning how to control your camera's exposure may be the best lesson you ever learn in photography.
My method of teaching exposure control is "different" from most, but the feedback I get from all of my students is that it works. I learn things by logic, by keeping things simple and by doing. I feel that most people are the same. So have a look at this class. It may enlighten you to the basic use and control of camera exposure.
I don't just believe what people tell me. I go out and try it to test if it is true or not. You would be surprised how many myths and falsehoods are out there in the photography world. I encourage students to confirm what I teach by trying it out themselves in their real world photography.
I don't like the "Exposure Triangle" which is the most common way that photography teachers explain these principles. I think the Triangle is confusing and doesn't explain the relationship and relative uses of the three exposure variables of ISO, Shutter speed and Aperture.
Learning how to "correctly" expose your images is a basic skill that all photographers need to achieve to properly move forward to more advanced techniques.
Understanding the primary and secondary considerations of the three variables is also the key to creative photography.
Like any worthwhile skill, it takes a measure of practice to become familiar with these principles but, when you do, a whole new world of possibilities open up.
