    I'm already confused

    I understand shutter speed and aperture, but what is ISO?

    That's three variables to think about already

    ISO is film speed. Film cameras could be loaded with different "speeds" of film, the higher the ISO the more sensitive it is to light, so higher ISO film can be used to get pictures in darker light using the same other settings. Obviously it doesn't apply to digital cameras but the setting has presumably been retained to provide photographers with a way of using similar variables as with a film camera, with the added bonus that they no longer have to change the whole film to get a different ISO. It's also handy because it gives the photographer the ability to change the settings without affecting shutter speed or aperture, which he/she may want to be set a certain way to get certain effects.

    50mm lens, F/1.4 aperture, 1/2500 shutter speed, ISO 100, post-processed in Apple Photos.

    Wide aperture to get the narrow depth of field, ISO 100 was a bit slow, probably could have used a faster film, so the camera had to compensate with a very fast shutter speed of 1/2500.

    25mm M4/3 focal length (equivalent to 50mm), F/22 aperture, 1/15 shutter speed, ISO 100.

    Used a very slow shutter speed to get the blurring of the water, so needed a narrow aperture to keep the light levels down, lowest ISO as well, but was still struggling to stop it from being over-exposed. Post-processed in Apple Photos.

    Thanks Breezy. I must admit I do like it a lot myself.

    20mm M4/3 focal length (equivalent to 40mm), F/20 aperture, 1/4000 shutter speed, ISO 3200.

    This is the Piper Alpha disaster memorial in H a z l e h e a d Park in Aberdeen. I wanted a silhouette so I stopped down the aperture to its narrowest, used a very fast shutter speed and a fast film. I shot it in black_and_white mode for added "gravitas" (love that word ), and towards the sun to keep the subject dark. Even with all that you could still see some of the light from the statue, so I had to darken it in Apple Photo, and I added a bit of grainyness as well. This made the clouds look very sombre and dark - it was quite a bright day actually - to add to the effect.

    The only thing I am not happy about is the angle as I would have liked to have got more of the third statue in, which is partially hidden behind the one on the left, but hey, you live and learn.
