  3. basics Back to

  4. · Shutter Speed · Aperture · ISO basics There are

    really only three things that you need to learn to understand photography.
  5. Shutter Speed The duration the shutter is open directly corresponds

    to how much light is hitting the sensor.
  6. Aperture The larger the hole, the more light gets through

    to the sensor.
  7. ISO How sensitive your camera is to the light that

    managed to get through to the sensor. (Yes, it is the same ISO you are thinking about… )
  8. Your camera does not matter

  9. Until it does.

  58. Lenses

  59. None
  60. Zoom lens A zoom lens is a mechanical assembly of

    lens elements for which the focal length (and thus angle of view) can be varied, as opposed to a prime lens.
  61. Prime lens A prime lens is a photographic lens whose

    focal length is fixed, as opposed to a zoom lens.
