ISO 80 f/5.8 1/250 .67ev 28.5mm
This is last night’s sunset… without a bit of post processing. After attending John Greengo’s class yesterday I decided to play with the Exposure setting on my camera… I have a Canon PowerShot SD 950, which is a point and shoot camera… but as far as P&S goes, its pretty good. I do have the ability to change the exposure by up to 2 stops in either direction, thus I experimented last night.
What I learned was that by increasing the expo by 1/3, it changed the shutter speed to a slower speed (from 1/500 to 1/250). Since the camera was on a tripod the slower speed was o.k and in fact I think the mountains are clearer on the slower speed.
And it did make for a “better” histogram.
Anyway, I’m finding this free photo class immensely informative… even for my point & shoot camera. At least I understand its limitation a whole lot better. I’m doing my best not to have DSLR envy… I simply can’t afford one so that’s that.
