How to Use Photography Metering for Vivid Images


This post is by PictureCorrect Contributor from PictureCorrect


Click here to view on the original site: Original Post




Most digital cameras share common features like exposure modes and focus settings. Various metering modes are found in all DSLRs. They offer different ways of reading the light values coming into a camera and determining the proper expsoure. Metering mode can also be defined as “the area in the viewfinder that is metered.”

Photo by Bernd Thaller; ISO 800, f/13.0, 1/160-second exposure.

In the early photography days the TTL (through-the-lens) method was used. Today’s digital cameras use much more refined methods of evaluating the light.

“Got my Viltrox 85/1.8 for Nikon Z cameras. I tested it on my Nikon Z6 II and it works fine. Tested it agains my Tamron 85/1.8 VC with the FTZ adapter. The Tamron hunts but is fast. The Viltrox doesn’t hunt but is some times slower. The Tamron had sometimes hard to nail the focus but the Viltrox nailed it every time. The area of sharpness seemed to be narrower with the Viltrox at 1.8. Will continue to do test and see if I will sell the Tamron.”

Landscape Photography: Manual Mode or Aperture Priority


This post is by Sunny Shrestha from PictureCorrect


Click here to view on the original site: Original Post




When photographing landscapes, one important factor that your camera settings influence is the depth of field. Usually you want a landscape image to come out as sharp as possible throughout the whole frame. And as you might have already guessed, you can control that by adjusting your aperture. You can easily do this by putting the camera either in the aperture priority mode or the manual mode. But which camera mode should you go with between these two? Landscape photographer Mads Peter Iversen explores this topic in today’s video:

As Iversen demonstrates in the video, aperture priority mode works great

Why Searchie?

Searchie is amazing.

Searchie is new… well, it’s over a year old, but it still has that new car smell.

REVIEW – Sapphire 2021 for Media Composer

Many people ask me why I always recommend third-party tools when it comes to doing tasks in Media Composer.  The answer is quite simple.  In most cases, once something is added to Media Composer, that’s it.  It doesn’t get many major updates past the point of implementation (Titler+ is an exception to that, and the reason it’s getting major updates is that it was a complete dog when first added).  Companies like Boris FX bridge the gap between what our NLE does, and tasks we need it to do.  I did a write up recently
