Getting exposure right

PC Mag has a really helpful article on getting exposure right. It talks about things like ISO, shutter speeds, aperatures, exposure block, and bracketing, among other things.

It's a good read for beginners and intermediates wishing to bone up on their skills. Taking good photos is not about having the best equipment. It's about doing things right from a technical perspective. It's also about creativity and vision. But you gotta get the shot you see in your head and the best way to do that is to get the shot right in the first place.

You can play around with the shot later in post-processing.
