Day 9 - Scales

As part of being more intentional with this blog, with my life, with my passions, I want to work towards this:

I will be chronicling my journey on my blog and I'm looking forward to the end result!

Day 9 - Scales is intriguing. I'm usually pretty good at memorizing stuff. Some of this is already in my brain...I've got ISO and Shutter Speed. I think because play with those most consistently on my camera, I feel comfortable. But the Aperture stops are taking some more time! 


EXPOSURE SCALES

ISO stops: 100 200 400 800 1600 3200 6400 etc.
Shutter Speed Stops: 1/1000 1/500 1/250 1/125 1/60 1/30 1/15 1/8 1/4 1/2 1″ 2″ 4″ 8″ etc.
Aperture Stops: f/1 f/1.4 f/2 f/2.8 f/4 f/5.6 f/8 f/11 f/16 f/22 f/32



The way Darcy summarizes it helps: 
If you don’t want to memorize stops, at least understand correlation:
The slower you shoot :: the brighter the image.
The higher the ISO :: the brighter and noisier the image.
The wider the aperture :: the brighter the image and the more shallow the DOF.
