Question by Alex Smith: good cameras, iso aperture, shutter speed?
i’m really into art and i just started learning digital photography.
I understand what ISO and aperture and shutter speed basically do but i was wondering
what are the “normal” settings for these functions.
and also what is a good camera for me to learn how to manually set these functions with.
thank you so much:)

There is no normal.
ISO governs light sensitivity. Too high leads to noise in the image. Too low leads to blurred movement or dark images because of insufficient light.
Aperture describes how much light enters the chamber. It also governs depth of field.
Shutter speed governs how long the light impinges on the light sensitive medium (film or digital sensor). Long intervals lead to motion blur, which is sometimes desirable, sometimes not.
The three together control exposure or the proper amount of light needed to get a good image.
