Why You Need Perfect Exposure in Digital Photography

Watch Why You Need Perfect Exposure in Digital Photography on YouTube

Underexposure is THE ENEMY of digital photographs! In this video I show you how underexposure can ruin a photo, losing color & adding tons of noise to a photograph. When you underexpose you dramatically lower the dynamic range of the captured image. Your camera might have 10 or 12 stops of dynamic range (which you paid a lot of money for) but if you don't expose properly you are wasting those capabilities.

I've noticed over the years many people are afraid of high ISO. I show you how exposing properly with high ISO can produce better results, check out the video!

didn't know that an under exposed picture could affect white balance so much. Good to know!
My camera has a tendency to under expose a little bit (in AV)that's why i use to överexpose slightly.

Two good videos Greg, so can you make the next one about how to actually achieve this. You know a nice example shoot and let us know where you are exposing and how you are setting your camera

Ooohhhh, thank you, thank you, thank you, Greg!! Now I got it. Such a good job, you did in this video. Now I know, I totally misunderstood the meaning of "expose for the lights ..." as yet. Thanks again!
Olaf

Thanks Greg
That has helped me a lot to understand exposer.

Would like some tips on shooting into the sun, as you said you were going to do a video. Yes please to that.

Thanks so much, Greg. I admit that I shy away from high ISO, but no more. It is hard to believe that you got more detail in the beard at 1600 than at 800!

Thanks Greg, I too am afraid of high ISO but its hard to dispute it now. However, do you believe that some dslr's models (i shoot nikon) handle high ISO's better than others?
Keep up the great videos!

I like my Nikons better. They got into the game over 4 years ago with high ISO and a full frame camera. I'm sure they will be ahead for years to come.

Hi Greg

I tried this with my Nikon D5000, amazing results
What would the result be if you were to use lower ISO and add a few extra stops?

Sorry I don't understand the question?

I think I was asking about what would happen instead of increasing ISO say from 200 to 1600 increased the exposer by 3 or 4 stops.
Would this make it more grainy and loose detail.
But having watched the video againI I now have it.

Would it be possible to do a video on how to achieve the correct exposure metering ? Thanks :-)

I'd have to put some thought into that...in the mean time check out my exposure video and histogram video...should get you started.
