Exposure and White Balance


Hello everyone! I hope you all are holding up during bad times like these! In my last blog, I shared my experience on ISO, Aperture, and Shutter Speed, and also their roles in photography. I am back here today to share what  I learned on Exposure and White Balance and how these elements are a key part of photography.
Exposure Triangle Let us start by Exposure Triangle. The Exposure Triangle explains how the amount of exposure, which is how bright or dark something is, affects a photo. ISO, Aperture, and Shutter Speed collectively work together to form the Exposure triangle.

Now I might sound a bit crazy here, but using the Exposure Triangle is no different than making a cup of tea! You need to have a perfect balance between three things, the combination of Milk and Water, the number of tea leaves, and the most important thing, time!

That means I am gonna bump my ISO up, to make the image as bright as possible." well, actually, you want the opposite of this, you want to keep your ISO as low as possible because when you bump your ISO up, the noise in the image also increases making your image look pretty bad. 
So while taking a photo …
