IkePhoto WorkshopBelievable Illusion
Using Light:
Skill Requirement: Basics
At minimum, you need to know when an image is accurately exposed with correct color, and reasonably sharp.
Exposure Dark, just right range, to too light.
Color Warm, neutral, to cool.
Sill Requirement: Histogram
All of you have active or passive histogram, exposure graph display, in your camera LCD. You must start paying attention to it.
Active histogram is much more useful because the exposure graph is fully active during the preview (before shooting) phase.

Exposure Error:
Whether the image is too light or dark, it ‘s usually not a problem with the camera exposure meter. Most real world scenes have tonal range beyond the capability of the sensor chip to capture accurately.

Light Level:
Without light, there is no image. With low light, there is poor image with digital noise (grain), bad color, and low contrast.
Seeing the Light:
Many of the assignment requirements (rules) are calculated to maximize the success potential for the student. It could benefit you to study the ‘why’s’ behind the requirement .

Make sure to shoot variations on your theme (bracket).
Study the histogram from each and every shot.
Be willing to re shoot and re shoot with less-is-more in mind.
