Aperture, shutter speed, and ISO work together to determine the amount of light that reaches your camera’s sensor; you must adjust one when you change another. Shutter speed controls the length of time the shutter is open; f/stop controls how wide the aperture opens; ISO is a measure of the camera’s sensitivity to light.
