i realise that the LCD on my DSLR is brighter than my monitor, which i deem it to be accurate. this makes exposure tricky to judge.
the pic will look okay on the DSLR, but when transfered to my monitor, it will look like it is 2 stops under. i trust my monitor cause it is inline with the lab that i am using
The LCD brightness has already been reduced to the minimum level.
Then i tried to rely on reading the histogram on the DSLR to get a more accurate exposure reading, but i realise that the histogram shown for the image on the DSLR looks different from the one shown on photoshop.
now, i have to dial in exposure compensation for all my shots when i shoot. i don't think this is the optimum way of working.
anyone has any experience on how to deal with this?? please advice. Now i can't shoot with confidence.
