Just to say thanks for this brilliant and clear explanation.

Thanks for this splendid gift to a large and growing segment of the large and growing photography community. Maybe it will even induce the cellphone camera segment of the community to look a little further into what they're missing and consider "real" cameras.

Your tutorials are AMAZING. Having a visual example really helps explaining everything. I love photography but have a little trouble understanding ISO/aperture/shutter speed relationships and I am confident that your explaination will help me greatly.

Nice explanation! Thanks for putting this together. One minor correction, though. On the slide on vignetting, the correct spelling is "border".

At explanation of all the numbers and instructions I have been finding it very hard to take on board. NOw I think I can go out with my camera with confidence (together with my little noteboook of hints and tips) Thank you so much for the time you have taken with this.

Bill, thank you for sharing your knowledge to the whole world. Im into taking pictures especially portraits but no idea of how my beautiful camera basic functions are. But you give me the basic knowledge, thanks again and more power to you.

I'd like to add my thanks for the many hours it must have taken to put together this tutorial.
It's finally starting to make if only the Canon D400 I ordered would hurry up and arrive!

Bill, I'm a a relative newbie and like most newbies, I think I understand aperature, shutter speed and ISO settings until I get in the field. Your presentation is simple, clear and the teeter-totter example really drives home the relationship. Thanks for taking time to put this together and sharing it.

One question: The teeter-totter is exemplary only, right. In other words, the f-stop and shutter speeds you use in the graphics are not either fixed or even suggestions, right. The actual selections are dependent on conditions.

The real kernel of info for me was your explanation of exposure compensation. I just can't remember whether ev- means more exposure or less but the idea that it means more or less LIGHT makes perfect sense. So if I want less light, I go negative on the scale. Thanks!
