The Exposure Triangle

The Exposure Triangle is a common way of talking about the relationship between the three variables that determine the exposure of a photograph. These three variables are Aperture, Shutter Speed and ISO. You need to have all three balanced to get the best outcome for your photo. Generally if you adjust one of these you need to make adjustments in the others as well to get the perfect shot.
