What is Exposure

The rules of exposure (and when to break them)

There is something called correct exposure but that just means creating a 1:1 replication of what we see.

There are many reasons why you would want correct exposure...and many reasons why you might not. This doesn't mean you can just ignore the rules altogether — like a classically trained jazz musician, you've got to learn the rules so you can break them with finesse.

We'll explain how to use the photography triangle to avoid overexposure and underexposure but we'll also review some examples when those "mistakes" can be used creatively and purposefully.
