Understanding Metering

Understanding Metering

Sunday 25 February
Downtown Winston-Salem - 12pm - 2 Hours
Winston Salem Photography Group
Josh Brown
Metering is an incredibly important aspect of photography to grasp. You might have heard about the exposure triangle but I believe we should be talking about an exposure square with metering being the forth side as it is equally as important to getting the correct exposure as your aperture, ISO and shutter speed.
We will explore how and when to use each of the metering options and how to use it to get some creative lighting in your shots.

    I took this photo on a trip back from Tennessee with my daughter. We stopped at Veterans Overlook in Grainger County to take a break, admire the view, and yes take a few photos. As we prepared to get back on the road and pull out, I looked over my left shoulder, saw the sun setting over the water and so I told my daughter we were getting back out. I grabbed my camera, we both walked down to the rocks and just sat there in awe of the beauty and the serene stillness of life. Even with light traffi

    While on vacation last week, I was photographing waves and birds off the coast. This little fella flew up and decided he would pose a little for me. I told my wife "don't move", LOL. After a bit he decided his quest for food was just a little more important. So I thanked him as he flew off, but you know I don't think he cared, LOL. Seriously tho it was a great moment and I'm glad I was able to have that time with him!

    First off, I have to say that I am not a "Birder". But I love challenging my photographic skills and abilities. The American Kestrel is not a big bird, and it is fast. So even when you know its takeoff is imminent, it is still hard to get a nice clear photo of the bird. This particular image was shot with a Canon R6 camera, with the RF100-500mm f/4.5-7.1 L IS USM lens at 1/5000 sec, f/7.1 and ISO 4000. I used the animal eye-tracking feature of this mirrorless full frame camera, and was very plea

Even with some clouds, we were not so fortunate and when the sunlight was casting on the water I switched to black and white mentality and was able to capture this photo. You can just see the setting sun in the upper right corner for the photo.
