Ok so i picked up a nikon d5000 today and super stoked on it. waited a week since I paid for it. It has a 18-55mm lens which i assume is basically stock. I read a little bit online about it and i need help in simple terms just to get the jist down. From what i read its mainly about aperture and isochanges? and numbers that look like this 1/50, 1/60, 1/70 and such. I have the aperture and iso ideas down but i have no idea when it comes to the 1/50, 1/60, 1/70 and so on...I was messing around today at the river near my house at the sunset and came up with this. I haven't done anything to the image since taking it. I was just messing around with the numbers till i got something i liked.
The settings for this photo were iso 200, 22mm, f/5.6, and 1/60sec
In my neighborhood i took a walk around and came up with this.
iso 200, 18mm, f/4.5, 13 sec
Can someone help me understand the numbers a little bit more clear? I guess when the seconds are higher does that mean the shutter speed?
and the f/ whatever number, the lower it is the more light it lets in and the higher the less light?
and iso is about the quality/grain or something?
