"sunny f16 rule" ...

There's something called the "sunny f16 rule" that photographers have been using for about a century. Go outside on a sunny day, set the aperture to f16, the shutter to 1/200, the ISO to 200, and take pictures of random things: close things, far things, things hundreds of feet away (trees are good, or distant buildings), people eight feet away, things inches away (flowers are pretty, and it woudl do you good to stop and smell them), and the exposure will be pretty much right on.

The flower a foot away isn't 10,000 times brighter than the tree 100 feet away, even though it's 100 times closer.

Great example. Even works when photographing a full moon.
Pretty hilarious thread for sure,
