Waiter
So Gentlemen, are you ready ?

Failures
No I thing we need a little more time, don’t we ?

Yes sure, take your time.

Take your time… You’re learning pretty fast my friend.

Failure, seeing this picture
And what’s that ?

Me
Well, that’s obvious. Blurred. I cut her two hands, put her head in the middle, shutter speed was to slow…

Failure
Well, you know what to do : take your time. Control your exposure, focus and then make the composition.

Me
Promised. I will.

Learn effect :

  • Measure the light
  • control the data in you cam (when shooting in M-Mode)
  • Use a light meter or your built-in spot metering. If you use your spot meter, then pick up 3 points (dark, bright and middle and make an average value)
  • A light meter is the best thing to do, but thing you might have to balance the light sometimes if to avoid strong contrasts (unless this is what you are going for it)
  • Don’t cut hands.
