Hi. I’m Rick, and yes, I am going to explain exposure in photography to you in plain English in less than 27 minute (ish) without the irrelevant details. Ok this is a two-parter. This is the what and the why episode. Next episode is the how episode.
This is the answery bit, which is as good a place as any to start.
Exposure in photography is the amount of light that reaches the camera sensor when taking a photo. A correctly exposed image has captured the range of light in a scene correctly. An underexposed photo is too dark, with information not recorded in the shadows. An overexposed image is too light, with information not recorded in the highlights.
That’s exposure in a nutshell, but there is lots more good stuff for you to listen to in this episode.
