Video: Aperture, Shutter Speed & ISO Explained

- 7 years ago

Do you know how to use the three most important settings on your camera?

Watch this video which has been brilliantly produced by Caleb Pike, YouTube creator and founder of DSLR Video Shooter, to demystify ISO, shutter speed, and aperture for beginners.

If you’re just getting started with your photographic journey, one of the most crucial elements to grasp is your exposure setting. Of course, pretty much every camera will have an automatic mode that will help to expose your image correctly, but that’s not going to help much with your learning process and just won’t cut it in every situation you choose to shoot in. That’s just one reason why it’s important to understand the different means photographers and filmmakers use to achieve a proper exposure. Shutter speed, ISO and aperture.

Watch, and learn.
