Izzy Video 018 – Exposure


In this one, I cover the three main camera tools which help you get a proper exposure, Shutter Speed, F-Stop, and Sensitivity.

This video is for members only.

I also announce the newest addition to the Video Podcast Network. It’s the new Digital Photography tutorial, Woven Shadows.

Update: Glimpster has been renamed Izzy Video.

  1. As usual, thanks for the useful information.

  2. Another great tutorial, but I’m looking at my Sony TRV140 camcorder, and I don’t have F-Stop, Aperture, or Iris and don’t have Sensitivity (ASA, ISO) settings either… :(

    I do have a way to set the exposure though, and I can see the difference that makes.

    It also has what it calls “Manual Set Program AE”, and has choices for Auto, Spotlight, Portrait, Sports, Beach&Ski, Sunset, and Landscape. I guess these are kind of auto set for these environments.

  3. […] It was a busy weekend. We also released RollingRs episode 8, and Izzy Video episode 18. […]

  4. Great tutorials. A great way to improve video on the web.

    Take the survey. I did!

  5. Israel,

    I really need help on this. I own a Canon GL2 which i am very happy with. However, I am starting up my own wedding videography business and I am having a hard time figuring out the best way to shoot in direct sunlight. I don;t always have control over my subjects especially when I am recording in the sunlight and I am recording guests…I just have to go for it and I can’t really place them where I want. So my question is, what is the best way to get the best exposure and color when I have to shoot paople in bright sunlight without getting too many black shadows on the faces or too light of highlights. Thanks!

  6. […] Hasta ahora su autor, Israel Hyman —un fanático de Apple y un editor de Final Cut Pro—, ha publicado una veintena de video tutoriales que cubren temas como continuidad (y la dirección de objetos y personajes dentro del encuadre), el montaje de fotos fijas, los tres puntos de iluminación, la exposición, efectos con la opacidad, o la diferencia que puede hacer en una imagen, el uso de una luz, entre otros. […]

  7. this is really great video.can we have another examples of aperture control with diffrent shutter speeds to create more effects? for instance when we shoot sea,we increase or decrease shutter speed…..that would be a great help for all learners…

  8. I know this is an old podcast, but was still very helpful to me with my new Sony HD camera, thanks!

    1. Hi Kevin!
