EXPOSURE TIPS: How to Use Aperture, Shutter Speed, ISO and The Histogram

Last week, I posted a video lesson on how to ensure proper exposure when shooting with mirrorless cameras. It’s actually a surprisingly easy method, and it will get you by in most situations, even when shooting in tricky and challenging light.

In that video, I share my exact exposure method when I’m shooting with my FUJIFILM mirrorless cameras, even when dealing with very tricky and challenging light. Note, these methods work for other types of mirrorless cameras as well, which make getting the right exposure a much easier process than when using DSLRs. (They also work when shooting in Live View mode with a DSLR)

>My second lesson in the series is called EXPOSURE TIPS: How to use. Aperture, Shutter Speed, ISO and The Histogram. In this tutorial, I explain even further the exact method I use when espouse for my photos, and show you how to combine these fundamental exposure components into an efficient workflow when you’re shooting your own images on location. I also teach you a couple of important tips that can help you be even quicker with the camera.

Proper exposure is one of the most vital aspects in photography, so this is pretty important information. You may already know it, but it’s worth a refresher and to see how I handle tricky scenes with my own cameras.

Enjoy the video and let me know what you think by leaving a comment!
