Sample text

A slit twice as wide would create a shutter speed of 1/250th second, and one twice as wide as that would result in a shutter speed of 1/125th second. Indeed, that 4X width exposes the whole sensor at once, and can’t get any wider, so shutter speeds longer than 1/125th second are produced by introducing a delay before the second curtain starts to close. Exposing the sensor to light for 30 seconds before the second curtain begins its upward travel would give you a shutter speed of 30 seconds (natch).

Those options are usually called the exposure modes. Finally, how can you adjust exposure to override or fine-tune the settings calculated by the camera’s metering system? The tools you have to work with include exposure value (EV) compensation, and bracketing. This chapter explains all the elements that go into arriving at the right exposure for a particular image. David Busch's Quick Snap Guide to Lighting Metering Modes This section introduces you to the three to five different metering modes found in advanced digital cameras, especially digital SLR models.

If no bar appears at a particular position on the scale from left to right, there are no pixels at that particular brightness level. A typical histogram produces a mountain-like shape, with most of the pixels bunched in the middle tones, with fewer pixels at the dark and light ends of the scale. Ideally, though, there will be at least some pixels at either extreme, so that your image has both a true black and a true white representing some details. Learn to spot histograms that represent over- and underexposure, and add or subtract exposure using an EV modification to compensate.
