Reply To: Metering and Exposure Compensation


Hi Sudheer,

I had issues in getting the right exposure in one scenario, can you please share your inputs, experience on the process of getting good exposure

Here is the scenario

I had small flock of small birds on a perch which is in kind of low light due to shadow of trees and behind the perch have a very harsh light, the distance between perch and behind elements are very less may be around less than 10 feet.

I had took the picture in evaluative metering mode. Because of harsh light camera was underexposing the birds and I had increased the exposure, the end result was overexposed background and overall picture was not looking good.

Can you please guide what can I do to prevent overexposure of background if i’am in a similar situation again.

Thanks, Sid
