Good quick guide Only thing I'd say though is that "stopping down" usually refers to the setting of the aperture size. What you've actually done is adjust the exposure by underexposing, which you can do by either reducing the amount of time the shutter is open or by choosing a smaller aperture, depending on what the camera is telling you it wants to use.

Both will reduce the amount of light hitting the film/sensor but depending on the situation can give very different results.
