Getting the balance of light right requires an understanding of exposure, or the “brightness” level of your picture. Your cameras light meter can help you do this but this isn’t the only way to do it.
How can you make these decisions for yourself? In this chapter find out how and why exposure matters as Karl demonstrates how you can control the exposure. He shoots a number of portraits with different shutter speeds and also explains the relationship between aperture and shutter speeds and how you can adjust these to get the best results.

- What is exposure
- How to control exposure
- Aperture: How to control exposure with aperture
