Wanna create MAGIC in your photographs?



This simple yet powerful method helps you switch from auto to manual mode and take control of your camera to create stunning images.
The magic of this triangle is how it allows you to balance the three elements to achieve the look you want.
Aperture: To control the depth of field ( more out-of-focus elements or even more in-focus elements ), you would adjust the aperture.
Shutter: To control the sharpness of any image, you would adjust the shutter speeds.
ISO – To increase or decrease the overall brightness, you would use the iso settings.
Using the exposure triangle, you can experiment with different settings and see how they impact your images.
Learning to adjust your camera settings will give more creativity to your images.
As you gain more experience, you will see how you can use the exposure triangle to create images with a unique style and vision.
In short, using the exposure triangle gives you the power to help you perform magic in creating your images.
Imagery that genuinely stands out.
Whether you are a beginner or an experienced photographer, the exposure triangle is an essential concept you NEED to understand in your creation.
Using manual is the MAGIC to creating more artistic images


To portray a more three-dimensional image, you would use the APERTURE ( F-Stops) to have elements like the background out of focus.
To get a correct well-balanced exposure, you would use ISO.
To portray motion within your images, you would use shutter speeds.
Now the magic only ever happens when YOU understand how to use them together.
Would you like to fully understand the magic that your camera can do?
