1:00 p.m.: “Mastering Exposure,” with Kevin Ames

The computers in our cameras are smart, but they are literal in how they set exposure. This session demonstrates how camera light meters work and why a lot of our photos or too dark or too bright.

Kevin Ames, a commercial photographer, unravels the way cameras see light and how they interpret what the exposure will be. He shows how to make whites white or blacks black in camera saving lots of time in post-production. He shows how to evaluate exposures with the ColorChecker chart, and provides a reflectance chart that helps with understanding how exposure works. Register now >
