Part 6 Shoot­ing a land­scape at sun­rise...

Let’s use ev­ery­thing we’ve learnt so far to pro­duce an amaz­ing land­scape shot

Digital Camera World - - DIAL M FOR MANUAL -

For this pleas­ing shot of a Glouces­ter­shire vale, taken in mid-au­tumn,

I got into po­si­tion just after sun­rise. Sev­eral morn­ings around that time had been misty – but with no break in the clouds for the sun to peek through, things looked a tad gloomy.

On my sec­ond re­visit to the lo­ca­tion, that had all changed, with the sun pop­ping in and out of play while I was there. Shoot­ing in Man­ual ex­po­sure mode, and not­ing the aper­ture value and shut­ter speed at half­way along the ex­po­sure level in­di­ca­tor, I shot a suc­ces­sion of frames ei­ther side of 0. Check­ing the im­ages af­ter­wards, I found the most pleas­ing im­ages were taken around one stop un­der the cam­era’s ‘cor­rect’ ex­po­sure, which was over-ex­posed.
