Project: Exposure Compensation
Exposure compensation is a great way to let your camera know that you are the boss! Your camera’s exposure meter is set up to make what it thinks is a good exposure. As we all know current exposure meters are great but we also know that they are not as smart as they think themselves to be! Blown out clouds or gray snow, we have all seen the results of letting the camera’s exposure meter rule the day. Take control and tell that meter you are in charge! Use your camera’s exposure compensation to tell the exposure meter how you want to your images to look. Remember, your camera’s exposure compensation should work in every mode except manual. What is that you say? Real photographers only use manual! Poppycock! More on that at another time.
As always, once you have made some images for this project feel free to share your results in our Facebook Group.
