Key Reading Summary
There are three key points that control exposure: ISO, Aperture, and Shutter Speed. ISO refers to the amount of light being let in through the shutters onto the final photo. The lower amount of ISO will create a clearer image while a higher amount would result in the contrary. Aperture controls the amount of light let into the diagram of a camera. Shutter speed refers to how long the shutters are open while a photo is being taken. Auto bracketing is an exposure technique referring to the differences of light in a photo. Exposure is very important to the editing of a photo. The differences of shadows, whites, clarity, and much more are affected by exposure. Exposure is impacted by how a photo is taken, how it is edited, and how is viewed. Exposure is important and impactful to a photo.

Manual Shooting Reflections
Shutter release and exposure both affect the outcome of a photo while in manual mode. I've learned that taking a photo in manual mode allows a person to have more hands on work on the outcome of a photo. The camera has a lot of tools, and manual mode also allows for all of those tools to be used a certain way. In summary, manual shooting may take a little bit more work than regular shooting, but the outcome of the photograph should be much more precise.
