Brian Peterson’s Understanding Creative Exposure
Within the first 15 minutes of this lecture, you’ll learn the difference between a correct exposure and a creatively correct exposure. Based in part on Bryan’s bestselling book, Understanding Exposure, this slide-talk lecture will definitely boost your level of exposure expertise. Do you know which ONE aperture to use and when you should use it to get the greatest contrast and sharpness in your exposure? Do you know which two apertures guarantee your background will remain as an out of focus tone? Do you know which ONE aperture when combined with the ‘right’ lens will give you an area of sharpness from three feet to infinity? Have you fully explored ALL the possibilities of motion-filled exposures? Climb on board and buckle your seat belt as Bryan also takes you on fantastic journey into the world of creative exposures where the shutter speed is King; freezing action, implying motion, panning and the basics of using “rear curtain sync/second curtain sync” with your flash. And what about Light? The vast and varying levels of light on any given day or week need not be confusing any longer when it comes to the most common question photographers ask; “From where should I take my meter reading?” Bryan will share with you his three most common methods used in metering, methods that guarantee a perfect exposure each and every time even when shooting in the sunsets/sunrises and city/country scenes at dusk or dawn and even backlit flowers or portaits. If you find the world of exposure confusing OR you are not recording consistently perfect and creative exposures OR if you don’t understand why some exposures ‘work’ and others don’t, then this is one lecture you can’t afford to miss. As you will discover, ANY subject can be turned into a compelling shot, no matter how mundane, IF you apply the vast and creative principles that are offered in this lecture on Understanding Exposure!
