Ultimate Exposure Computer

Ultimate Exposure Computer
Imagine an exposure computer so advanced that it uses your eyes as a sensor. The processing unit is as powerful as your brain. The computer is accurate over a light range from reflected starlight through the light produced in a hydrogen fusion reaction. This computer weighs nothing and operates without batteries. It comes with instructions to allow you to implant the capabilities of the computer directly into your own memory so you can accurately judge a correct exposure by simply looking at the type of light that the subject is in. You are using this computer right now! Everything I've said above is true. The fact is that the concept of photographic exposure is extremely simple. Knowledge of photographic exposure is essential to controlling the creative side of the photographic process. But first, a word about copyright. WHY YOUR LIGHT METER LIES TO YOULight meters can be less accurate than you might imagine. How do you compensate for the fact that your meter is lying? So it goes.

An Introduction to Shooting Street Photography With Film For the last year and a half or so, I have been shooting my personal street photography on exclusively film. After shooting digital for around 7 years or so, it has been a great experience so far and I have learned a ton. When I first wanted to start shooting street photography I had a lot of fears.

Introduction How Exposure Affects Film OK, so for a while we’ve been wanting to explain a couple of film technicalities that we’re pretty sure will change many people’s understanding of film and exposure. Alright, take a deep breath ‘cause this stuff is easy but sometimes difficult to explain in written communication. So the thing is that exposure on film (unlike in digital photography) is not equivalent at all to overall brightness of an image. For example, in the digital photography world when someone speaks of an overexposed image you instantly imagine a bright, all-white image with (probably) clipped highlights.

Using Coloured Filters in Black and White Photography Black and white filters let you control how colours are converted to shades of grey. Use them to get the right contrast and mood in your photos. A common problem in black and white photography is that certain colours look very similar when converted into greyscale. For example, some shades of red, green, and blue look completely different in colour, but almost identical in black and white. This can cause objects in a black and white image to blend into one another, leaving you with a photo which is flat and lifeless, and lacking in contrast and definition. Photography resources in London: the cheap lab near Shoreditch High Street – UPDATED I still shoot film because I love it, but it so damn expensive to get it developed and scanned in London! I’m trying to force kindly convince my lovely uncles to team up and buy me a decent flatbed film scanner as a graduation present, but till then I’m pretty much dependent on photography labs. I have to thank Ruvan (see this post to read about him) if I haven’t gone bankrupt while snapping freely with my Olympus Mju, because he showed me this lovely (and cheap!) place that used to be located close to Brick Lane, but has since moved to Bethnal Green road: Eye Culture. The owner is a film lover and the prices are quite low (at least for London).
