  • Higher the ISO = more light
  • Higher the ISO = more likely to get a grainy image
  • Best outcomes are when the ISO is lowest

Aperture (Lens Opening Size)

  • Controls depth of field
  • Smaller the size = smaller the focus
  • Higher F/Stop = less light
  • Higher F/Stop = large depth

Shutter Speed

  • Controls Motion Blur
  • Slower shutter speed = more motion blur
