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 not enough light, and the flash not only does not save the situation, but even makes it worse.

How to shoot when you find yourself in poor lighting conditions and do not have the ability to use the flash, we will talk in this article.

Tonal range values

The tone of a photographic image is determined by the proportions in which black, white, and gray tones are correlated.

Degrees of tonality in photography
The human eye recognizes up to three hundred steps between white and black. In a black-and-white image, there can be up to thirty tones (long tonal scale) or up to ten tonal shades (short scale).

Moderation in the number of tones sometimes provides a photo with greater expressiveness. By eliminating the middle tones, you will get rid of non-essential elements, and photos taken in a certain key will turn out to be very effective.

Exposition. The exposure compensation

Exposure is the amount of light needed to create a photo. Nothing complicated.

The exposure is dosed with fixed assets:

Extract
Aperture

Basically, in digital photography, it is customary to say that exposure depends only on the shutter speed, aperture, and ISO, but in fact, everyone who says so, omits the flash operation. Continue reading

Adding volume to a photo

Human vision is binocular, which means that we have an excellent perception of the shape and volume of objects in space, regardless of the light.

But in photography, everything is different: it is two-dimensional, flat, completely dependent on light, which often distorts the shape and volume of individual elements.

The optimal ratio of shadow and light will help add volume to the photo, provide the effect of three-dimensional space, mark the texture, and give the image the appropriate mood and emotions.
