After examining his settings, David advised jess tweak just a few settings on her Canon 6D
Jess was a confident young photographer and often used Aperture Priority (Av) or Manual mode on her Canon 6D. “You fully take control of your exposures when in Manual. This enables you to set the aperture shutter speed to get the results you want, rather than letting your camera dictate what it thinks should be bright and dark in the shot. This is extra important when photographing dark land masses against brighter skies,” says David.
David suggested Jess set the white balance to the Daylight setting, for consistent and accurate colours during the day in Devon: “Auto White Balance is okay, but changeable coastal weather can result in a set of wildly different shots. So I set WB to Daylight for consistency; shoot in Raw and you can always tweak the white balance in Lightroom or in Adobe Camera Raw to get the best colour temperature for your scenes.”
