Exposure (photography)

amount of light captured by a camera
(Redirected from Overexposed)

In photography, exposure is used to mean two things. Photograhic films or sensors have a certain senitivity. That means that a certain amount of light needs to be able to reach the film or sensor, before the image is correctly exposed. An exposure can also refer to a photo exposed that way.

Longer exposure times mean a lighter image.
