TOPIC: High altitude

High altitude 2 years 2 months ago #6224

I am going to the Himalayas next week. I have a D7000,and I intend just to take my18-300 lens to keep weight down. What would be the best settings for landscape shots. Are there any issues at very high altitudes? Thank you

There is no "correct" setting for any shot, just the one that gives you the correct exposure and you can have several different settings to get the same exposure, thats if your shooting manual. If the sun is out, try to shoot with the sun behind your back, you will then have a rich blue sky if its sunny. Sometimes it can't be avoided, but if its a "keepsake type of shot" then just do the best you can and perhaps use a polarizer filter.

Sometimes if there are puffy clouds, i'll actually underexpose some to keep the detail in those clouds.
