When too much light arrives at the sensor it is called overexposure and the image is too clear (if not white) and has no details. you talk instead of underexposure when the light that hits the sensor is low and the photograph is dark and, even in this case, devoid of New Mexico scenery details.
In order to have a correct exposure for Pictures of New Mexico, it is necessary to bear in mind the triangle composed of ISO, or the sensitivity of the sensor to light; aperture or the hole that adjusts the amount of light passing through the lens, based on the information (or those of the camera), and, indeed, shutter speed.
These three parameters form the exposure triangle and are very closely linked, let’s say that they are almost concatenated, since the correct exposure depends on the right combination of these three factors.
To be able to manage shutter speeds you need a camera with manual or semi-automatic controls. On the ring (which can be on the left or right, depending on the model) selects the Manual M, or Tv or S for the time priority setting. At this point, you are ready to select the shutter speed, do you know how to read those values for Pictures of New Mexico?
The shutter speed is measured in seconds or fractions of seconds. The integer values such as 100, 200, 500, 1000, 2000 and so on, indicate that the shutter speed is 1/100 of a second, 1/200 of a second, 1/500 of a second, etc. When you see numerical values appear followed by the seconds symbol (that is “) it means that, in fact, the photograph will last an entire second or more.
You can control the exposure time via the LCD monitor, the small LCD panel located on the top or directly in the viewfinder. When the exposure time is a fraction of a second you will only see the denominator (for example: 1/200 will be 200); while when it comes to whole seconds, you will see the entire value with the quotation marks (for example, 6 ).
By short shutter speed you mean values equal to or less than 1/1000 of a second. This time allows us to get frozen actions, or you can shoot subjects even when they move quickly. This is the value to use when photographing a sporting event, animals on the move and even children playing or cycling.
