Teacher: Kenji Tachibana Digital Photography I Exposure Compensation Shoot: Exposure Compensation: EC EC is about adjusting image brightness. The brightness adjustment can be made in small 1/3-stop increments up to plus/minus 2-full f/stops as shown in the exposure scale below. | | | | | | | | | | | | | - 2.0 - 1.7 - 1.3 - 1.0 - 0.7 - 0.3 0 + 0.3 + 0.7 + 1.0 + 1.3 +1.7 + 2.0 | | | | | | | | | | | | | - 2.0 - 1.7 - 1.3 - 1.0 - 0.7 - 0.3 0 + 0.3 + 0.7 + 1.0 + 1.3 +1.7 + 2.0 The camera default is the mid-point which allows for 2-full stops of lightening or darkening an image.

Teacher: Kenji Tachibana Digital Photography I Exposure Compensation Shoot: Learn by doing L earning goals 1.Learn to see ‘Normal’ exposure. 2.Learn to see over (light) and under (dark) exposures. 3.Learn to see slight (.3-stop) difference. 4.Learn to see serious (1-stop) difference. 5.Learn to see light to dark tones. 6.Learn to see tonal ‘Separation’. 7.Learn to force Skylight into a side direction light source. 8.Learn to setup and for a copy-art shot. 9.Learn to ‘center frame’ the copy-art to retain its proper shape. 10.Learn to use the focus bracket. 11.Learn to squeeze the shutter button for razor sharp results.

Teacher: Kenji Tachibana Digital Photography I EC Series Example: It shows only 9-shots 1_kenji_-1.02_kenji _-.73_kenji _ -.3 4_kenji_0 5_kenji _ +.36_kenji _ +.77_kenji _ +1.0. Replace this with your first name… Notice the period representing a decimal number. Tight layout – frame exactly as shown by the dotted black cropFrame line plus the 10% safe-image margin as shown.

Teacher: Kenji Tachibana Digital Photography I Exposure Compensation Shoot: D etail: Actual pixels (100%) Even in an exposure test, the image must to be razor sharp to give meaningful exposure information. In this normal exposure image, there is nothing too light nor too dark about the subject. The image is so clear and full of detail that a fingerprint can almost be taken from this image exposure test shoot.

Teacher: Kenji Tachibana Digital Photography I Exposure Compensation Shoot: C orrect Exposure Guide: The 10-step grayscale card provided for your EC test shoot was printed on a luster surface (semi-gloss) paper to give the deep black (#1) to crisp white (#10) tonal range. Using a glossy surface paper would have resulted in deeper black the crisper white but it would have been too reflective, shiny like a mirror. And the use of mat surface paper would have resulted a 9-step tonal range.

Teacher: Kenji Tachibana Digital Photography I Exposure Compensation Shoot: C onfirm & Find Normal: EC test will test your camera light meter. When done correctly, the camera normal will end up being the actual normal in the final. Choose the normal based on ‘separation of all the 10 tones. If 1 & 2 does not separate, the exposure is under. If 9 & 10 does not separate, the exposure is over. UnderNormalOver

Teacher: Kenji Tachibana Digital Photography I Exposure Compensation Shoot: S etup: Finding and creating the set will take most of the production time. The 2 example images shows the set from the side and from the top. Please study them carefully and more details images will follow… Side ViewOverhead view

Teacher: Kenji Tachibana Digital Photography I Exposure Compensation Shoot: C ore Concern: One The lens must be dead centered and perpendicular to the ‘artwork’. I call it artwork since the subject is basically flat. And this setup can be used to shoot artwork.

Teacher: Kenji Tachibana Digital Photography I Exposure Compensation Shoot: C ore Concern: Two The lighting quality and position must be correct. Tilting the artwork is an important first move in getting the proper light direction. The red Navigator paper pack is stiff and heavy. If the stage is too light, it will move which will be a serious problem. The camera was placed on the state to take the ‘Light source shot’ shown to the right.

Teacher: Kenji Tachibana Digital Photography I Exposure Compensation Shoot: L ight Source Shot: This shot is now the 4 th Shot require for all class shoots. Hopefully you can see how useful it is. The top-right lighting shown to the right is creating the required top-left lighting on the EC shoot set. The light source shot is always done with the zoom set to full Wide Camera

Teacher: Kenji Tachibana Digital Photography I Exposure Compensation Shoot: S et: Small details A stapler is being used to hold the clipboard from sliding off the red paper pack. I used white paper first but it caused exposure issues. So I removed the white paper and shot against the clipboard as the back- ground. The clipboard can be replaced by a shopping bag which has the same color and tone. I used the white paper initially thinking that it would be easy availability for students.

Teacher: Kenji Tachibana Digital Photography I Exposure Compensation Shoot: S et: History In the past, the preferred background was photo gray. But that proved to be An availability issue for many students. So I provided the background but that is not always possible. So, I settle on something less ideal but more available. A shopping bag. I used a clipboard which is very similar. I still prefer the used of photo-gray…

Teacher: Kenji Tachibana Digital Photography I Exposure Compensation Shoot: S et: Small details The tripod was too short so a Canon box was used to raise it. It worked but the tripod was still tilted. I later found and used a taller box to level the tripod. One quality helpful to an image maker is being resourceful.
