Just before the sun is about to pop up over the horizon, it announces it’s intent by turning the sky a wonderful shade of red/orange. That’s what happened this morning so I just had to grab a camera. My cameras have a metering setting that I’ve never used until this am so I wasn’t certain as to what to expect. The setting is called Highlight Metering and has been designed to take the brightest spots of the bright area into consideration when making a decision about the exposure. It worked.
Look for new settings on your camera. The odds are that some new things are hiding in plain sight. We will go exploring in the new Beginning Digital that starts on Saturday, January 10th. Why not go exploring with us?
