Get­ting the right ex­po­sure is fun­da­men­tal to pho­tog­ra­phy and refers roughly to the amount of light reach­ing your cam­era’s sen­sor. You can have the best com­po­si­tion in the world, but if the ex­po­sure is even slightly off, it can ruin an oth­er­wise fan­tas­tic im­age.

Get­ting the cor­rect ex­po­sure can be elu­sive for many dif­fer­ent rea­sons – even the most so­phis­ti­cated cam­eras on the

mar­ket can be fooled. In this guide we’ll take a look at some of the most com­mon ex­po­sure prob­lems, with ad­vice on how to over­come these is­sues to achieve the best re­sults.

We’ll be cov­er­ing tech­niques for fix­ing ex­po­sure in-cam­era, as well as ac­ces­sories you can use to help you get it right. We’ll also look at post-pro­duc­tion tech­niques, which can help res­cue shots that might have gone a lit­tle wrong.
