Exposure. How to "draw" with light

Teach students how a camera works and how to control the ISO, Shutter Speed, and Aperture.

The interworking of a camera can be a little confusing. Hopefully this unit will help clear up a little of that muddy water.

Expect students to learn how to use aperture, shutter speed, and ISO to create the perfect effect for the images they want to take.
