[PHOTOGRAPHERS WARNING] Don’t Rely On Your Camera In These Situations
Very dark and very light scenes can trick your camera into taking under and overexposed photos. For example, if there’s snow on the ground or if you’re shooting at the beach, your camera’s light meter can’t read the scene correctly.
The same thing can happen with very dark scenes – if you have a dark background and your client is wearing dark clothes, again, you’re going to have a problem with your exposure.
In this video Tony Northrup author of Stunning Digital Photography walks us through camera metering. He takes us to a snowy part of Connecticut where his camera’s meter is not functioning properly and teaches us how to change the metering to fix that.
