With Halloween coming up in a few days Jim and I thought we would introduce you to “Low Light Photography”.
- Review of course submissions.
- Review of challenge submissions.
- Discussion on Low Light Photography and Exposure Compensation
- Live View Demo
- Practice session.
In evening conditions the camera light meter tries to maximize the image for detail and often over exposes, spoiling the “mood” of an evening or night shot. If you use the semi automatic modes “A” or “S” ( Aperture and Shutter Preference) you can use Exposure Compensation to get the desired effect. In Manual mode you have of course full control and can ignore the light meter advice and force the camera to “under expose”
For this session we have prepared a number of “Halloween” props for you to practice on. Below a few images from last year’s session.
The page is now open for submissions.
