An Autumn ~ photo share
Metering ~ I am a shoot 100s of photos and hope for the best kind of photographer. After finding Courtney’s blog I decided to take control over my photography and to learn more about improving my photos through use of manual mode and settings. This being said, I never realized I could or would need to meter anything. This week’s “lesson” inspired me to do some reading on this subject, grab my Nikon and head out to the field to photograph the Fall harvest. I was feeling empowered to capture something wonderful. There was clearly a difference in the sample photos posted by Courtney, however when I changed the settings, I did not notice any difference. Perhaps it was the subject matter I was shooting, or the rainy overcast weather, or maybe pumpkins and apples just always look good and don’t need to be metered. None the less, I am happy with the photos I captured, but I am happier I arrived at the farm in time to enjoy one of the freshly made apple cider donuts.
