Hi all, it will be a long weekend break again this weekend and for my fellow Muslim friends, I wish you all “Selamat mengerjakan ibadah korban“.
Well actually nothing much to mumble this time, just a simple example on how your camera sensor responses to light in semi auto setting. As aperture priority is among photographer’s favorite when DOF is their concern so on this set of pictures, I set my camera at aperture priority for the shots. On my 1st shot, I try to trust my camera metering by letting the camera decide on the exposure, so here is the result…
The flat look on above capture is because the camera metering system was fooled or tricked by dark area of the riverbank
In My second shot as the camera suggest the exposure and I locked the exposure and compensate it to correct exposure on fly. As a result it gave me exposure as below which was what I wanted.
Whatever it is, it your choice on what exposure you want but understand how your camera respond to light will make your work a lot easier, till than happy weekend everyone 🙂
