It’s critically important to get a correct exposure when shooting with a digital camera. I shoot my digital camera exposures in RAW mode at the lowest ISO I can use and still get the shutter speed and f-stop I want. Although modern cameras have many different exposure options, I have a standard way of shooting that works best for me. I believe that the image itself is the most important thing. That’s why the steps for getting a good exposure have to be second nature, practiced and thought out ahead of time. That allows you to focus on making that all important image!
Five years ago I moved to the Sunshine Coast, just north of Vancouver, BC, Canada. Living here one becomes attracted to the water and the natural beauty that surrounds you. Before moving here, I never was in a sea kayak and seldom found myself in a boat. Now being on the water in a kayak or sailboat or just the ferry that brings us home is one of the things I enjoy most. In the last five years I’ve spent a lot of time learning how to color adjust waves and ripples, color and contrast of water so it looks the way I see it and feel about it when I’m out there on the water.
