Correct Exposure For Digital Cameras

What REALLY is Correct Exposure?

Forget about the Exposure Triangle and Histograms!

Who needs a triangle? Choose your shutter speed with purpose and your aperture with feeling, then adjust the brightness with ISO.”  — Joe Edelman

Aperture, Shutter Speed and ISO are the three most important camera controls that every photographer needs to understand – but how do you determine the correct exposure, to begin with?

In this interactive live web presentation, I will walk you through the concept of correct exposure and what that really means in the age of mirrorless digital technology.

Our camera technology has changed dramatically in the last twenty years, but the way we think and talk about exposure has not kept up.

Instead of triangles and histograms, we will dig into the relationships between Aperture, Shutter Speed, and ISO so that you create more consistent exposures.

What you will learn:

  • How to best determine “Correct Exposure.”
  • The relationship between Aperture, Shutter Speed and ISO.
  • Why you need to FORGET the Exposure Triangle.
  • Why you need to ignore the Histogram.
  • Exposing to the left or the right is NOT a technique; it is an occasional solution to a problem.
  • . . .and much more!

Who should attend this LIVE presentation?

This presentation is suited for photographers of all levels. It will give beginners a solid understanding of achieving correct exposure. For intermediate and advanced photographers, it will challenge what you think you know and help you use these controls creatively and consistently.

How can I help you?

There will be a live Q&A session after the presentation.

Come prepared with questions.
