Exposure Scenarios


  1. Hi Jim, this is a terrific approach to help understanding the various exposure controls. It’s the first time I have come across real life exposure scenarios posed as questions, and it’s a very good instructional technique. I subscribe to a number of photo blogs but your site stands head an shoulders above the others. Your Resource Guide is an absolute goldmine of information, and I am pleased that you included my favourite photo mag in your suggestions – Photoplus. Keep up the good work !

    1. Excellent, I’m glad you like it. And thanks for the kind words. I’m going to update the Resource Guide sometime this year as well, so stay tuned for that.

      Yes, PhotoPlus was really one of my main sources of photography information for probably the first year I was seriously trying to learn about photography. I really like that magazine. I used to work though the disks they sometimes included with Photoshop and Photoshop Elements tutorials. The only thing I didn’t like was that it was so expensive (here at least). Why does it seem like most of the good photography magazines are British? They all cost as much as a book by the time they get them to Texas. Oh well.

      Anyway, thanks for checking in and I hope you continue to like it.

  2. Remarkable article. I have almost always used manual settings, but never really thought how one setting affected the others. Really opened my eyes as to how important it is to think about what setting you are changing and why.

    1. Great! I’m glad this proved useful to you. Since you’re already in manual, hopefully it will help unleash you and get you the best shots possible.

  3. Excellent, Thank you Jim for such a detailed article. And the scenarios are just brilliant enough to Ignite the interest.
    I always thought of this relation between Parameters of Exposure Triangle, but thought nothing such existed. And you made it look easy with “STOPs”.
    Thank You.

    1. Thank YOU! I’m glad you like the article. I really think scenarios like this should help people see how these things fit together, and I’m glad that happened in your case.
