Taking pictures is the one thing everyone loves to take when traveling. While there are a lot of point-and-shoot cameras, along with smartphone ones, that auto-adjust the settings to give you a good picture, some of us love to use our DSLRs in manual modes that requires adjusting the ISO, aperture and shutter speed.

It’s not easy for beginners to know the complexity in the relationship between ISO, aperture, and shutter speed. But, Lifehack has a graphic that helps make sense of it. Check out the article too to know how the amount of light you let it affects a photo, how certain settings can increase noise, and how focus changes.

The top section represents aperture, the middle shutter speed, and the last ISO.
