    Info Manual Photography Cheat Sheet



    Notes:
    Exposure
    - The light meter is different from the exposure setting.
    - Keeping your light meter at “0” doesn’t necessarily mean it’s the perfect setting. Just don’t stray too far from the “0”. Adjust to your liking.
    - Positive numbers on your exposure setting will make your photos brighter.
    - Negative numbers make your photos darker.
    Aperture
    - Small numbers (like f/1.4) have larger openings, which let in more light.
    - Big numbers (like f/16) have smaller openings, which let in less light.
    Shutter Speed
    - Seeing 100, 250, 320, etc. on your viewfinder means “1/(number seen)”, like “1/100”.
    - Try not to use 1/60 or less when handheld, that’s when you use a tripod or look for something steady.
    - Using longer exposure (slow shutter speed) will let in more light.
    - Using shorter exposure (fast shutter speed) will let in less light.
    ISO
    - ISO is the sensitivity of your camera to light
    - Lower numbers are less sensitive to light, which give smoother photos.
    - Higher numbers are very sensitive to light, which give very grainy and noisy photos.
