Join Derrick Story for an in-depth discussion in this video Reviewing the sunglasses shots, part of Getting Pro Results from a Compact Camera.
So here we are.…We are back out of the field and at our computer and I'm looking at the photos…here in Photoshop Elements 8, but on the Mac side it has Adobe Bridge.…That's where we are actually viewing the photos in here.…So I want to take a look at these shots that we took, using the…sunglasses polarizer.…Now the shot here on my left, no polarizer, and in fact the shot is just a…little overexposed and I think possibly the camera was a little fooled by some of…these dark areas here or I just may have screwed it up, which is very possible…when I'm taking pictures.…
Now the camera on my right here did have the sunglasses polarizer, and as…you may recall I talked about this in the field.…I actually decreased the exposure a little bit, because sometimes when I use a…polarizer, I want a little bit more saturation and so I'll decrease that…exposure, minus one-third or minus two-thirds.…So we actually have two things going on here. We have the sunglasses polarizer,…and we have exposure compensation and you'll notice a big difference.…
