Join Ben Long for an in-depth discussion in this video Exposure strategy , part of Foundations of Photography: Exposure.
This is a Moreton Bay Fig tree, and as you can see, this particular…specimen is spectacular.…It's got a really beautiful big root system underneath.…It's got big, thick, gnarly branches.…And as a photographer, as you are walking up to it, you are not probably…thinking, "Wow, look at that beautiful tree."…You have done that already.…That's why you are walking up to it in the first place.…After you've identified it as a subject, and you are walking up to begin…shooting, what you should be thinking is, "What potential exposure problems are am…I going to have here?"…And it should be kind of obvious what they are, right off the bat, the biggest…one is going to be backlighting.…
I have got all this sky back here that's going to potentially mess up my shot.…If I am going to be shooting underneath the tree, I've got the problem of…standing in shade with all that bright stuff out behind.…What I need is an exposure strategy before I even press the shutter button the first time.…We have been looking at a lot of theory in this course, a lot of exposure theory.…
