Appreciation Camera Capture


Composition Focusing Exposure Histogram

Capturing a scene is the start of a process.

The pages that follow are made for raw users as some settings work only for raw and will create a disaster if you use JPG.

Composition and focusing are neutral but when it comes to the scene exposure do not follow my suggestions. I shoot to the right (ETTR), I use a 'weird' wide balance that makes everything look green but allows for a better exploitation of the camera dynamic range.

The pages included are:

  • Composition (very little advice here)

  • Focusing (AF pitfalls)

  • Exposure (Pages)

    • ISO

    • Aperture

    • Speed

    • Camera mode

  • Histogram
