How to Change Exposure on Nikon DSLR Cameras

There are a couple of ways to change exposure on a Nikon DSLR camera. You can either use the Exposure Compensation dial on the camera body or the Exposure Compensation button on the camera’s shutter button.

To use the Exposure Compensation dial, turn the dial until the desired exposure is reached. To use the Exposure Compensation button, press and hold the button until the desired exposure is reached.

Keep in mind that the Exposure Compensation dial affects only the exposure of the image on the LCD screen. The exposure of the image captured on the camera’s sensor will still be determined by the aperture and shutter speed settings.

How to Change Exposure in Manual Mode

Manual mode is great for setting the exposure yourself, without relying on Auto ISO. To change exposure in manual mode:

1) Open the aperture (f-stop) ring to the desired setting.

2) Turn the shutter speed dial to the desired speed.

3) Look at the exposure meter to see how much light is being sent through the lens.

4) Adjust the aperture or shutter speed until the meter shows the correct exposure.

How to Use Exposure Compensation

The Nikon D7000 provides extensive exposure control options, allowing you to fine-tune the exposure to match the brightness of your subject and the lighting conditions. There are three exposure compensation buttons, located just above the shutter release button on the left side of the camera.

When you first power on the camera, the default settings are set to “Auto” and the shutter speed and aperture are automatically controlled. If you’d like to change the exposure, you first need to set the camera to ” manual ” mode. In ” manual ” mode, you can set the shutter speed, aperture and exposure compensation.

To set the camera to “manual” mode:

1) Press the shutter release button halfway to turn on the camera.

2) Press the shutter button fully to take a picture.

3) Look at the screen to the right of the viewfinder.

4) The camera is now in “manual” mode. The “mode” icon in the lower right corner of the screen will show the current mode.

5) Use the Multi-controller (joystick) to highlighted “manual” and press the OK button.

To change the exposure:

1) Use the Multi-controller to highlight “exposure compensation” and press the OK button.

2) Use the Multi-controller to highlight the aperture value you want to change and press the OK button.

3) Use

How to Use Aperture Priority Mode

Aperture priority mode allows the photographer to choose a certain aperture value, and the camera will choose the appropriate shutter speed to maintain the desired exposure.

For example, if you set your aperture to f/8 and want to maintain a 1/60th of a second shutter speed, the camera will use a shutter speed of 1/60th of a second, no matter what the ambient light conditions are. If the ambient light is bright, the shutter speed will be slower, and vice versa.

However, if you want to stop the action in a moving subject, you can use a higher shutter speed to freeze the movement, and then use a lower aperture to keep the background in focus.

Here’s how you would use aperture priority mode:

1. Choose your aperture.

How to Use Shutter Priority Mode

Shutter priority mode is a great way to take pictures without having to worry about the timing of the shots. This mode lets you set the shutter speed, and the camera will take the picture when the shutter is released.

To use shutter priority mode on a Nikon camera, follow these steps:

1. Open the camera’s menu system and select “Shutter Priority.”

2. Set the shutter speed you want to use. A slow shutter speed will let more light into the camera, while a fast shutter speed will let less light into the camera.

3. Set the ISO (a setting that affects the camera’s sensitivity to light) to a low value if you want to take pictures in low light situations.

4. To take the picture, press the shutter button halfway to begin the countdown, then release it to take the picture.


If you want to change the exposure on your Nikon camera, there are a few different ways to do it. You can use the manual controls, or you can use the camera’s exposure compensation feature.

My journey toward photography has been an interesting one. I started with a very basic DSLR camera, and after several years of experimentation with its manual settings, I finally made the jump to single-lens reflex (SLR) cameras. Being a photographer is not just about having a camera or being able to take pictures well. It requires the ability to process information from raw data, which is why I am passionate about learning things and implementing them in real life. Hey!
