13 settings every photographer should know

1:setting the exposure using the histogram- the cameras LCD screen might be a good way to tell if what you’re doing is right.
2:Raw- most cameras produce high quality jpgs, yet it is still not the same as RAW files.
3:Selecting focusing points manually- the camera has the option of selecting the auto-focus points for you.
4:Learn all AF modes- most cameras come with different auto-focus modes like One-shot AF, Servo AF and AL auto-focus.
5:Aperture priority- in this kind of mode your camera will vary the exposure settings depending on the aperture value you set.
6:Shutter priority- this is a type of shutter that gives you complete control over shutter speed while making all the other settings automatically.
7:Control motion blur- motion blur often comes from using a shutter speed that is too slow for holding the camera in your hands.
8:Manual white balance- learning to set white balance manually, according to each lighting situation.
9:Drive modes- there are three different kinds, single shot, continuous low and continuous high.
10:Iso- lower values are great when there is plenty of light to work with.
11:Auto-ISO- this will help you when you are shooting.
12:Exposure compensation- it is a scale that will tell your camera to increase or decrease exposure.
13: Manual exposure- last thing you need to do is you have to learn how to use your cameras setting is full manual control.

Camera simulator

With the camera simulator I learned how shutter speed , ISO , and aperture work together , When you change the aperture you have to change the shutter speed. The higher the aperture the clearer it gets. Aperture also blues the foreground and background in a picture The last thing I learned was that the ISO changes the brightness in a picture

What I learned about exposure

Today I learned about aperture which is an opening, hole, or a gap, light passes through. Shutter speed its when the length of time when the film or digital senor inside the camera is exposed to light, Camera modes shooting modes fall into three categories, auto, scene, and P,SA and M modes they are known as exposure modes.
