Module 5 Summary
to summarize the light meter is the tour that calculates how much light is the right amount. Now your camera has three main light meters multi segment spot and sent awaited. The multi segment meets. The reason most accurate and the easiest to use. It's major floor is always giving you an image very close to what you see with the naked eye, which means it's less well suited to creative photography. The spot meter is more complex to use but is the best option when you want to use Light creatively sent a weighted metering his ideal for portrait photography. Now, when it comes to what the meter is telling you, all meters think that all subjects are medium great. I will give you a meter reading that renders old tones as medium grey. This means the meat will under exposed light tones and over exposed dark tones to correctly exposed light and dark tones. Use exposure, compensation toe, add or subtract light, and remember, you can purposely over or under exposed tone to create different aesthe...
tic effects. For example, under exposing light toned clouds to make a darker and more dramatic moving on to dynamic range camera dynamic range is the camera's ability to record detail in highlights and shadows simultaneously. Same dynamic range is a difference in stops between the lightest and darkest objects, or areas in the scene now seem dynamic. Rain should fall within camera dynamic range to avoid clip or blocked pixels. When seen, dynamic range exceeds camera dynamic range. You must decide whether to retain detail in hi lights or shadows. As a rule of thumb in digital photography is better to hold detail in the highlights. To help achieve accurate exposures, use the history, the history of the bar chart that shows the distribution of tones from black to white. Now there is no such thing as a perfect hissed a gram. It must be read in conjunction with the image it relates to. In addition to the hissed a gram, the highlight screen and zebra striping reveal areas of image where pixels, the clipped that is grossly overexposed in post capture processing is better to darken an over exposed image than lighting and under exposed image. So remember the mantra exposed for the brightest part of the scene, where detail is important and that's it.
