What could be simpler?
Take a picture;
Take a look at the histogram;
If the exposure is in order-it’s in the hat;
If the histogram indicates underexposure or overexposure, use exposure correction to increase or decrease the exposure, then go back to step 1.
Repeat the sequence until you are satisfied. Continue reading
Very cold balance, designed to neutralize the orange light of incandescent lamps with a color temperature of about 3000 K. Images taken in the evening under artificial light, in the Tungsten mode, begin to look natural. If you use this mode during the day, the frame will turn an intense blue color. Try adding 1-2 steps of underexposure to this, and the scene will look like it was shot in the middle of the night.
Auto WB. Under the light of incandescent lamps, a cat that is dozing seems to be bright red, but in fact it is almost gray. Continue reading
It is not superfluous to mention here also the law of inverse squares, the action of which you will certainly encounter. It sounds like this: the intensity of light is inversely proportional to the square of the distance from its source. This means that if the distance from the light source is doubled, the illumination of an object will fall fourfold. This is a lot – two stages of exposure. Our vision adapts to changes in light, and the difference in two steps will not be too noticeable to the eye. In the photo, it will become obvious.
Imagine that three people are sitting in a room by the light of a table lamp. Continue reading
