For 2016, the Pet Photography Project 52 are working through David Duchemin’s book ‘The Visual Toolbox’. Our lesson, and theme for this week is ‘Exposure: Optimising your RAW Exposures’.
The best digital negative (RAW, not JPG) is the one with the most amount of data.
For this week, turn on the Highlight Warnings so when you review your images you can see the areas that are over exposed. Since we’re shooting in RAW, don’t use the LCD to judge your exposure, because it’s reading the camera’s JPG. Use the histogram for taking your images and try to keep the exposure as far right as you can. You’ll adjust the color and exposure in your post-processing.
This week has been a bit of a hectic one for me and whilst I started the assignment, I’ve haven’t fully completed it. So instead I’ll quickly introduce you to our new foster pup – Demi Vedder Lix instead … with before and after RAW edits.
And I’ll promise to do better next week!
Project 52 is a weekly circle project so from here, use the following link to hop over and visit Future Framed Photography, South Dakota to see what they have created, and then keep visiting the other blogs until you end up back here.
Happy Friday y’all X
