    Welcome to the forum Maggie,

    That is sort of a loaded question...

    There are three main things that affect exposure. Shutter speed (the length of time), aperture (the size of the hole in the lens, represented by the F number) and the ISO (sensitivity of the film or digital sensor).

    I suggest looking up 'Basic Exposure' or getting a good book like 'Understanding Exposure'.
