Photography podcast #72 discusses how to use exposure compensation. It’s a fairly simple concept that just means deviating away from (or compensating against)‚ the camera meter’s recommended exposure to make the image brighter or darker. We also talk about which camera modes you’ll want to use exposure compensation with, and I discuss why program mode sucks and should be avoided. Even though exposure compensation in photography is an easy concept, I discuss the reasoning behind it, why I frequently use it and why you should too.
