Man­ual all the way

NPhoto - - The NPhoto Apprentice -

While in Santa Rosa in the Peru­vian Ama­zon, John and Car­los found some chil­dren play­ing in a flooded area of the vil­lage. John sug­gested to Car­los that he should switch to man­ual ex­po­sure mode and use spot me­ter­ing, tak­ing an ex­po­sure from the chil­drens’ faces to en­sure that they’d be cor­rectly and con­sis­tently ex­posed, re­gard­less of whether they were in front of bright wa­ter or a darker back­ground. Tak­ing a quick test shot and ad­just­ing the ex­po­sure val­ues ac­cord­ingly meant there was no ex­cuse to miss a shot! John also rec­om­mended us­ing the con­tin­u­ous drive set­ting on Car­los’s D5100, and shoot­ing bursts of shots in or­der to cap­ture peak mo­ments such as kids jump­ing and wa­ter splash­ing.
