Photography: Understanding Exposure
Exposure is all about the amount of light you let into your lens.

- If you overexpose you’ll end up with blown out highlights: You can never recover detail in these areas of a photo.
- If you underexpose, the same applies as with blown highlights: There is no data recorded in these areas, and you can never recover any detail.
- The shutter speed is a measure of how long the shutter stays open. The longer its open the more light comes in.
- The aperture is an adjustable hole in the lens. Adjust the diameter of the hole to let more or less light in.
