Advanced Exposure Techniques

Advanced Exposure Techniques

and Metering Mode in DSLR Camera!

Do I need an exposure meter to set the right exposure in my DSLR?

This is a question that I am asked in almost all of my workshops! And my answer is:

“For shooting in ambient light, your camera’s built-in light meter does a perfect job.”

How do I unleash the power of my camera’s light meter? Do I need special techniques?

This is a great question to ask! We’ve all heard about “Spot Metering”, “Center-weight Metering”, “Partial Metering”, and “Matrix/Evaluative Metering”. But do you know how to use one or the other in different light conditions? This is what I am going to share with you in this workshop “Advanced Exposure Techniques and Metering Mode in DSLR Cameras“!

Understanding Exposure Techniques

in Camera’s Light Meter

Zone System

In this 3 hour workshop you will learn how the camera’s light meter works, how to find different metering modes, how to use each one, and how to select and lock exposure. After the break you’ll learn about Ansel Adams Zone system as it relates to understanding the different zones and using it to set the exposure.

Are you interested in HDR photography?

As part of the zone system discussion, you will learn about bracketing for HDR (High Dynamic Range), setting Exposure Compensation and how to shoot for details in highlight and shadow.
