Default Exposure Correction Tip


Have you ever taken pictures in a picnic shelter and wondered why in many of your shots the subjects looks so dark? A quick correction is to turn on your flash to itís forced mode. Why does this happen? The camera sees all that sun light in the background and adjusts the auto exposure for the bright sun and in this case the foreground subjects are not properly exposed. There are other tricks that can take care of this problem but when you hand your camera to your wife (or husband) just set the flash to itís forced mode and you will see much better photos at that picnic. Even your basic point and shoot cameras have this feature. Have a great summer.

Thanks I've found that useful, However I once set the 602 to Slow Synchro by mistake and couldn't figure out the handshake warnings on indoor shots at the time. It was 5 shots later that the penny (cent) dropped!!
