  • Sunny 16 rule


    In photography, the sunny 16 rule (also known as the sunny rule) is a method of estimating correct daylight exposures without a light meter. (For lunar photography there is a similar rule known as the looney 11 rule.) Apart from the obvious advantage of independence from a light meter, the sunny 16 rule can also aid in achieving correct exposure of difficult subjects. As the rule is based on incident light, rather than reflected light as with most camera light meters, very bright or very dark subjects are compensated for. The rule serves as a mnemonic for the camera settings obtained on a sunny day using the exposure value (EV) system. The basic rule is, "On a sunny day set aperture to and shutter speed to the reciprocal of the ISO film speed or ISO setting for a subject in direct sunlight." For example: On a sunny day and with ISO 100 film / setting in the camera, one sets the aperture to and the shutter speed to or second (on some cameras second is the available setting nearest to second). On a sunny day with ISO 200 film / setting and aperture at , set shutter speed to or . On a sunny day with ISO 400 film / setting and aperture at , set shutter speed to or .

  • Table setting


    Table setting (laying a table) or place setting refers to the way to set a table with tableware—such as eating utensils and for serving and eating. The arrangement for a single diner is called a place setting. The practice of dictating the precise arrangement of tableware has varied across cultures and historical periods. A table setting may have many elements, especially on formal occasions; the long utensil is a lobster pick.
