Join Ben Long for an in-depth discussion in this video What is exposure compensation?, part of Photography Foundations: Exposure (part 1).
- I really hope that you're not just sitting…at your computer watching these movies one…after another after another.…I mean, I'm tired of hearing me talk.…I can't imagine what you guys are feeling.…It's important for you to be getting out and practicing…the things that we're talking about as we go along.…Hopefully you've been doing that and hopefully you're…getting good about your half press of the shutter button.…You're starting to get that habit of always half pressing,…letting the camera focus, and meter.…In the old days, before auto focus,…you had to set all of the settings yourself.…Shutter speed and aperture you had to set yourself.…
ISO is a decision you made when you bought a roll of film.…Back then it was absolutely possible for you…to set settings that were completely wrong and just take…bad pictures one after another.…You can still do that if you like.…There are modes on your camera…that let you have full manual control.…Your light meter works a little bit differently…when you're in those modes.…We'll talk about that later.…
