On Monday 22nd January, we held a “Mastering the Exposure Triangle” night!

It was great to see so many members and new faces!

Mastering the exposure triangle is a fundamental skill in photography, and it becomes particularly important when shooting in low light conditions, such as at night. The exposure triangle consists of three main elements: aperture, shutter speed, and ISO. Here’s how you can apply these concepts for your photography:

  1. Aperture (f-stop):
    • Use a wide aperture (small f-number) to allow more light into the camera. This helps capture more details in low-light situations.
    • A wide aperture also results in a shallower depth of field, so consider the creative effect you want on your composition.
  2. Shutter Speed:
    • In low light conditions, you’ll generally need a slower shutter speed to allow more time for light to reach the camera sensor.
    • However, be cautious of camera shake. Use a tripod to keep the camera steady during longer exposures. If you don’t have a tripod, try to stabilize the camera on a stable surface.
  3. ISO:
    • Increase the ISO setting to make the camera more sensitive to light. However, keep in mind that higher ISO values can introduce more noise (grain) into your images.
    • Find a balance between ISO and shutter speed. Higher ISO values can compensate for a faster shutter speed, but finding the right balance is essential.

Remember, practice is key. Experiment with different settings and techniques to find what works best for your style of photography.
