EXPOSURE TRIANGLE

Understanding the basics of the exposure triangle-

There are 3 elements involved in exposure (hence, triangle)

• Aperture (the amount of light that passes through the lens)

• Shutter Speed (the amount of time the shutter is open to allow in light)

• ISO (the film or sensors sensitivity to light.)

When you change one element of exposure, you alter the other two elements. This image will give you a basic understanding of what the 3 different sides of the exposure triangle are capable of.

Dana is drawn to the beauty in simplicity within the frame. One who lives by the words "less is more" she translates this feeling into her art. Creative composition and isolating subjects are just a couple of elements that play a strong role within the frame. Finding beauty is its simplest form. Dana lives with her husband, son and two kitties in a small town outside of Toronto, Ontario. When not spending time with family, or shooting, she enjoys baking (just about anything under the sun) or riding through trails on her mountain bike.
