1 Measure your exposure correctly
1.1 Aperture - Depth of Field
1.1.1 Helps control the amount of Flash Light reaching the sensor
1.1.2 Affects Depth of Field
1.1.2.1 Small f/stop = Large aperture
1.1.2.1.1 Large Aperture = Shallow Depth of Field
1.1.2.1.1.1 Large Aperture = Lots of Light = Faster shutter speed
1.1.2.2 Large f/stop = Small aperture
1.1.2.2.1 Small aperture = Large Depth of Field
1.1.2.2.1.1 Good for landscapes and panoramics
1.1.2.2.1.2 Small aperture lets very little light into sensor and therefore requires a longer shutter speed
1.1.2.2.1.2.1 Good for waterfalls
