Lighting Lighting is the single biggest determinant of how your camera needs to be set. With only a few exceptions, you can never have too much light. Use this slider to experiment with different indoor and outdoor lighting conditions. Distance Use this slider to simulate how close or far you are in relation to the subject. Focal length Moving this slider is the same as zooming in and out with your lens. Mode The exposure modes of an SLR let you control one setting while the camera automatically adjusts the others. ISO refers to how sensitive the “film” will be to the incoming light when the picture is snapped. Aperture Aperture, or f-stop, refers to how big the hole will be for the light to pass through when the shutter is open and the picture is snapped. Shutter speed Shutter speed is how long the shutter needs to be open, allowing light into the camera, to properly expose the image. Happy simulating!

It opens and close to let more or less light in, and also changes the depth of field, or how many different objects can remain in focus in the shot at the same time.

Exposing to the Right Explained Exposing to the right, or “ETTR,” is an approach to photography that is as helpful as it is controversial. On one hand, exposing to the right is yet another technique to remember while shooting, and it can potentially ruin your exposure if utilized incorrectly. On the other hand, at least in theory, ETTR is the epitome of digital exposure. With proper ETTR, your images have as much detail in the shadows as they possibly can, without any of the highlights losing information along the way. It is important to know that this article is not for beginners.
