White Balance, Exposure Compensation and Composition

Standard

This week I continue to learn from my online Craftsy class. Of course it was on sale this week for $19.99 and I paid $41.20 last week! It was good to watch the other modules of it because I had been focusing on ISO, aperture and shutter speed. However,  I learned about white balance and exposure compensation this week. I needed to learn some so many of my images have been either too dark or too light. One of the modules also talks about composition and creativity which I need to start thinking about too.

Here is a video about white balance:

I am also continuing to use my Canon app. to learn:

Last, but not least, here are some recent pictures I took:

I need to keep working on the Rule of Thirds. I also need to keep learning about how the exposure triangle all goes together, but slowly but surely my pictures are getting better.

  1. You’re pictures are looking great! I really like the snowy bridge one. My husband and I should take that online class. He has a fancy camera but we’ve never learned how to use it properly. I think I’ll get that app!

  2. I like the snowy bridge one too! Thanks for doing such a good job of commenting on the apps and tools you’ve used to learn about photography. I’m interested in learning more and would benefit from taking a look at your blog when that time comes!
