FIX THE EXPO SURE
Your Nikon won’t always get the correct exposure without your help. Here are three ways to take control
Exposure is always open to interpretation! The camera can try to anticipate the kind of picture you want, and this is what Nikon’s Matrix metering and Scene Recognition System are designed for, but so much depends on the scene itself, the contrast range, which part of the picture is the subject – and, above all, how you want it to look – that you can’t always rely on the camera to guess correctly. There is another issue with light meters in cameras. They can only measure the light reflected from the subject, so they will be fooled by unusually dark- or light-toned subjects. That’s why you sometimes need to take over.
