Playing with light

by Berckmans Peter December. 11, 2018 487 views

The 2 following picture are taken almost at the same moment, just seconds apart. And just by changing the lightmeasurment inside the camera I got 2 completly different photos. Also the edit on those is for both exactly the same. So the difference is into the method of measuring light.

This one is done with the zone measurment or maybe called in some camera matrix.

On the other hand this is done with spot measurment. As you can see 2 completly different pictures, both with their strenghts.

This is something I like to do, to create some different moods without extra lighting or flash. I hope you like them and also like to play around with the camera settings.

Nice play with light. Can't tell you which I like best, they both have distinct features.

Thanks a lot for showing two examples of how to measure light in a camera. I like them both anyway.

Very cool, I was just reading about this the other day, and seeing these photos helps me visualize the difference. Both are beautiful in their own way.

Glad they helped you. Just play around with the setting in your camera. We can afford it in digital times,no good just delete

I like both, but for different reasons. I like all the detail in # 1 & the mystery in #2

Hello, it's me... 
If it's me... you know i'm a pain in the... smile 
I like #2 more.. but I'd love a halfway between 1 and 2.
Basically a #2 without the light glare. 
I love the building and the light and the details blue heart Great job!

I know what you mean. You can solve this with HDR,what I nt have build in the camera or in edit. But I am no fan of HDR ,it just is not realistic. If I had a tripod and a bit more time, the rrsilts would be different,but to many tourists and no tripod allowed. And your are no pain in te .... I would let you know if you were

Thank you my dear! blue heart 
Some HDR are excellent.. but you must be a Photoshop PRO... I'm not! 
But, most of the times I agree with you. They are unnatural.

They are both nice, but I do like the second one better (more light, thanks to more contrast) smile
