Exposure Bracketing :-(

11 Jan 2010

Sh** ! Yesterday I went on a shoot and forgot to check the bracketing on my camera. Taking standard pictures (one at a time) I got only one third correctly exposed. And I only noticed it when uploading them to my computer. Bracketing is wonderful, except when it starts to mess up your exposure, like one correct (as metered) then one underexposed then one over exposed. At first I though my lens’s diaphragm got stuck in the cold. After all it was around –20C… Then checking the camera settings at home I found that the bracketing was still set to “on”.

Oh well, I suppose I will never forget this setting again (wishful thinking) Happily Lightroom can correct a lot of things, and I was shooting in RAW. Damage limited but the extra work was a little too much.
