Thread: 1/2 stop under/over exp.

  1. #1

    Default 1/2 stop under/over exp.

    Remember hearing somewhere that underexposing a half-stop or two-thirds of a stop yields greater colour saturation and overexposing a half-stop yields greater shadow detail. Or something like that. Would like to find out more about this so does anyone have any info to share?

    Are you shooting film, slide film, B+W film, or digital?

    Yes,
    If your subject does not move around or the lighting condition is static, and your exposure setting is correct.

    No,
    If your subject moves around, you get three different pictures with different exposures.

    No,
    If the lighting changes, you get a picture with three unpredictable exposures.

    No,
    If your exposure setting is totally over or underexposed, no exposure bracketing can save your picture, let alone getting the best of three.
