Sometimes when you are taking photos with your Olympus EM Series camera, you will want to lock your exposure. This will help you maintain the same exposure no matter how the lighting changes. How do you lock exposure? In this movie, author Richard Harrington demonstrates how to lock the exposure of your Olympus EM Series camera.
- Sometimes, you're gonna wanna lock the exposure…of your camera.…Maybe you're dealing with lighting changes…or you just don't want the camera…to keep making adjustments.…Well, that's pretty easy to do using the button…on the back of the camera, which is default…mapped to auto exposure lock…and it could also be used for auto focus lock.…This is quite useful if you want to…adjust the focus and exposure separately…or you don't want to shoot several images…that have variation from each one.…Now, take a look through the view finder here…and you'll notice that it's currently on.…That's what AEL means.…
When I press that button, it's a simple toggle,…on and off.…This means that we can lock the exposure down.…Now, I'm gonna give you a quick demonstration.…Right now, if I shine a light on the subject here…to add more light to the scene, it's gonna vary.…You'll notice the current settings here…and when I add additional light to the scene,…you see how the changes are happening…in the scene itself and notice how…the shutter speed is changing.…
