My Brain Hurts

Even veteran photographers get confused by these topics sometimes and wind up with a dull, throbbing headache. The fact that shutter speed, aperture, and sensitivity are all connected can be terribly confusing. The most important thing to remember is that they are all directly related, so that when one of them changes, something else has to change as well to keep the balance right.

If you set the sensitivity first to match the lighting situation, you can then forget all about it until the next time you need to change that setting. It's a good idea to always leave your camera at the lowest ISO setting unless you have some specific need to change it (low light without a flash, for example), as you'll get the highest quality picture that way.
