Secret Camera Light Meter


Secret Camera Light Meter

Ted’s Wednesday Photo Tip is about the Secret Camera Built-in Light Meter. 

To set the Exposure right, photographers need to measure the light. 

In the old days, photographers used to carry around a hand-held light meter. 

Thanks to digital cameras, there is a built-in light meter, which surprisingly is very accurate!


Secret Camera Light Meter Modes

There are three standard modes, Average, Center-weighted, and Spot metering. 

Average Metering measures the overall exposure for the scene. It is best for Landscape photography.

It is beneficial for high-contrast scenes.

It is best for portrait or sports photography.

Do you want to take advantage of the Built-in Light Meter?

Omnilargess Photography workshops focus on many hidden features in digital cameras and editing software. These hidden features assist photographers in taking their photography skills to the next level.

I dedicate a good portion of our digital camera workshops and Editing classes to discuss these hidden features.

Digital Camera Crash Course is one of our most popular photography courses. This two-week program is in four sessions, and each session consists of theories and hands-on practices.

Our next Digital Camera Crash Course starts on September 26th, 2020. There are only a few spots left.

We're sorry, but all tickets sales have ended because the event is expired.
