Hi there, I am pretty new to photography with an SLR and would appreciate any advice.
I am mostly in Aperture priority mode. In order for me to adjust exposures in harsh or dim lighting, I utilize the exposure compensation button to fix an exposure setting as opposed to switching to manual mode and adjusting from there.
I am just wonder if it is the right thing to do in order to fine tune exposures to create different sort of photographs?
To my knowledge, there are several ways of finetuning saturation in the photos. One is of course the lighting and the other being the white balance (unsure if terms are being used correctly in this sense). Sometimes, especially with dark skies (with little light), photos come out looking slightly less saturated than what I would like it to be. I have also read that overcast skies seem to bring out the best colors in photographs but I have yet to experience this as photographs for me seem to be the nicest in the sunset and sunrise where there is actually a bit of sun coming through the clouds.
Thus my question is, is there anything that I can do with the camera to increase the saturation of the photographs?
Hope it's not a mouthful for all.
