Tenth Post: Learned Something New
When shooting my photos for faux ads I was up on a really sunny hill. I put a little bit more trust in my lighting meter than I normally do and unfortunately a lot of my negatives turned out really white. Normally, I change the exposure time and aperture a lot to make sure I get the type of contrast I want. I don’t know why, but I decided to just go with what the meter says. I learned not to always trust my meter and be sure to switch the exposure up a bit to get a few different types of contrast. Luckily I can put a filter over the negative and still hopefully get a good print. And also luckily I got a few shots that had great contrast. Never again will I use the same exposure for almost all of my shots!
