This was simpler back when light (exposure) meters were separate handheld devices. You set the film ISO on the meter and measured the light and got a set of pairs of numbers: shutter speeds and corresponding apertures. Eg. f16/125, f8/250, f5.6/500 etc. Each of the pairs gave the right exposure for a given scene and ISO.

FYI - this is EXACTLY how the "Program Shift" feature works on Panasonic cams. You can see on the sliding scale the f-stop and shutter speed to decide how much DOF or stop-motion you want and what the corresponding other factor will be
