How to Meter by Eye
The formula for exposure of a middle tone subject on a bright sunny day is f/16, sutter speed 1/125, ISO 100.It is exposure reference point of sunny day.
here is the list of full shutter speeds to 1/1000th of a second:
B (Bulb), 1, 1/2, 1/4, 1/8, 1/15, 1/30, 1/60, 1/125, 1/250, 1/500, 1/1000.
And here is a list of the full aperture or f-stops up to f/22:
f/1, f/1.4, f/2, f/2.8, f/4, f/5.6, f/8, f/11, f/16, f/22
Now if you increase sutter speed or aperture light will be entering less and if you decrease sutter speed or aperture light will be entering more.But good photography means good exposure.
Here if we change aperture f/16 to f/8 ,means light entering through the lens two stop more,this situation image will be over exposed due to more light, for this we need two stop less light.So we can changed sutter speed 1/125 to 1/500 or we can changeed ISO 100 to 400,because
f/16,1/125,ISO100 = f/8,1/500,ISO100 = f/8,1/125,ISO400
So both exposure is same.
