We will also learn how to use light modifiers like a reflector to help capture appropriately exposed shots in not-so-great lighting.

Understanding Metering

Understanding Metering

Saturday 16 November
Lloyd St, Pensacola - 9am - 2 Hours
Pensacola Photography Group
Renee Romero
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 first spotted this juvenile Yellow-crowned Night Heron as it flew to a small pond of water on the beach. I turned to see some other birds and then turned back to see this bird had flown to the log. I was happy to get this shot because in an instant, he had moved on.

    A sweet family asked me to take their pictures at sunset on the west end of Dauphin Island. I turned around and snapped this bird-shaped rain cloud. Pelican? Hummingbird? Can?t go wrong with sunsets at the Sunset Capital of Alabama!

    I grew up in Mobile. I remember visiting Bienville Square as a child in the 1960s. I loved to feed peanuts to the squirrels. Always loved this fountain also.

    I was focusing on a Marsh Harrier and when I put the camera down I saw this Robin perched on the edge of my table. He just stared at me and patiently waited as I reset the camera. I still had my zoom on and almost fell off my seat leaning to get focus. The images of this bird are among my favourite sets....

    Castle Hill is an amazing location for Landscape and Astro photography. Used a Nikon Z6ii & 20mm 1.8 lens along with a lens warmer plus the Photo Pills planner.The moon was brighter than expected - 5 days old but it actually did us a big favour in lighting up the rocks with the Milky Way core above it. This is the jpeg with no edits.

    I was on a photo workshop in the park with about 8 others. We set up for the night in the Cathedral Overlook campground. At about 3:30 am, the leader got us up and we drove, then hiked to this spot. We took astro shots, then waited in place for a couple hours until early light on the cathedral formations. This is was a merging of the two exposures that created this image.
