Tim says… Be care­ful when you’re us­ing the LCD dis­play to judge ex­po­sure at night, be­cause it makes pic­tures look brighter than they ac­tu­ally are, and this can af­fect your judge­ment – Ross had his dis­play bright­ness set to max­i­mum, which was far too high for the con­di­tions. This is why ex­po­sure brack­et­ing is a good idea, and it’s also worth keep­ing all your brack­eted shots un­til you get back to base, where you can look at them un­der nor­mal light­ing. The his­togram dis­play can be a good guide to ex­po­sure, but bear in mind that the cam­era’s dis­play­ing a JPEG ver­sion of the pic­ture that’s been pre­pared in-cam­era. The ac­tual RAW file will have more high­light and shadow de­tail.
