Understanding Exposure

Exposure - Understanding it, and getting it right

Exposure remains the Holy Grail for photographers despite the flexibility the digital age has brought. Exposure errors can still cause considerable problems. Poor exposure will make image editing far more difficult and sometimes impossible. In these videos we take the mystery out of exposure, so you can develop consistency and confidence in your photography. 

A professional Photographer cannot come back to their client and say, the photos didn’t come out. This is good news for those trying to learn about exposure, because if the professional can do it, so can everyone else. Exposure is like many other tasks we learn in our lifetime. One minute it seems impossible, then the penny drops and suddenly we are looking back wondering what all the fuss was about.
