Ex­pose for the fore­ground

“The key with any sun­rise shot,” says Chris, “is to ex­pose for the land­scape part of the scene first. For Jean’s first shot, we set ISO100 and an aper­ture of f/11 in Man­ual mode and then pointed her cam­era at the loch and ad­justed the shut­ter speed un­til the ex­po­sure level in­di­ca­tor lined up with the zero. A quick test shot re­vealed the loch was a touch over-ex­posed so we in­creased the shut­ter speed from 1/2 sec to 1/5 sec to let in less light and darken the loch a touch. When we re­com­posed the im­age, the sky was now com­pletely blown out, but this was easy enough to fix with a grad­u­ated neu­tral den­sity fil­ter.” (See Pro’s Killer Kit #01, right.)
