Reciprocity Law (Photography)

The Reciprocity Law explains how exposures work in photography. Basically, the Total Exposure is determined by the intensity of the light times the duration of the light. So, if you want to change your camera settings and get the same exposure, whatever you move in one direction for one setting (longer shutter speed), you have to move the other setting in the opposite direction (smaller aperature).
