This week, Project 52 is tackling the photographic triangle – aperture, speed, and ISO. I recall when I started shooting in Manual, it took me a long time to get even a hint of a decent exposure. Not sure I still get it, but I’m glad we have this challenge this week so that I can refresh and remind myself how the triangle works.
Using a garden “dog”, I started with a 400 ISO, 1/1000 shutter speed, and 1.4 aperture. With each photo, I kept the same ISO, but slowed the shutter speed a notch and tightened the aperture each time. The exposure was pretty much the same, with the histogram somewhat in the middle. But when my speed got to under 1/100, there was a definite unsteady blur beginning. Too much caffeine!
Interesting challenge, something I need to continue to work on. Now go over to Future Framed Photography, South Dakota to see how she handled the triangle.
