One of the difficulties of being a beginning photographer is relying on your camera’s automatic mode to make all the decisions regarding exposure on your behalf. Doing so doesn’t help you learn about exposure, nor does it help you master all the controls your camera offers you.
In this short tutorial, Moose Winans offers a simple workflow that allows you to take more control with aperture priority and exposure compensation. The results? Improved exposure and greater creative control in your images. After all, by controlling the aperture, you not only control how much light enters the lens, but you can also control creative effects, like depth of field.
