Photography Tutorial: Adjust Exposure with Aperture and ISO

What is a stop of light, how does it affect exposure, and how do you adjust them? This 3-part video explains everything you need to know about stops. In this second part of the lesson you’ll learn how Stops and Exposure relate to ISO and Aperture.

In Part I we learned what a stop is and how you can use shutter speed to control exposure.

Part III shows how to use all three settings (Shutter, Aperture, ISO) to balance and perfect exposure while achieving beautiful creative results.
