Proper Exposure

Proper Exposure

Shooting the exact same scene as before, we can set the shutter speed to its highest setting. This will permit very little time for light to enter the camera. So, in order to get a proper exposure, the aperture must be much larger than before to allow additional light to enter the camera. For a given exposure, shutter speed and aperture work together like the ends of the teeter-totter.
