Exposure settings in limited lighting conditions
Everyone knows that in order to get a good picture, you need the right lighting. However, photographers often have to work in not the most comfortable conditions, when there is…

Аuto mode

Fully automatic or green mode does not need to be introduced. The camera thinks about everything here. Not only the shutter speed and aperture, but also autofocus, flash, white balance, in short, everything is under her control. Except that she doesn’t press the button herself… Although work is already underway in this direction.

Often, the AUTO mode is supplemented with an almost identical “no flash” mode.

Listen to good advice: if you are still shooting in AUTO mode, try at least experimentally switching to program mode (P). Continue reading

Exposure compensation

Modern cameras are equipped with a built-in exposure meter, which is able to automatically assess the level of illumination and select the appropriate values of the exposure parameters. If the exposure value offered by the exposure meter does not suit the photographer, he can either switch to manual mode and set the exposure independently, or, while remaining in automatic mode, use exposure correction. Exposure correction or exposure compensation is a forced change in exposure relative to the value determined by the exposure meter. Positive exposure compensation causes the camera to increase the exposure by a specified amount, and negative exposure causes it to decrease. For example, if the camera’s exposure meter allows one step overexposure under certain conditions, you should apply an exposure correction of – 1 EV to get a normally exposed frame. Continue reading
