September 18, 2018 - Introduction to Exposure Bracketing

2018 09 Exp BracketAt our September meeting, Art Stiles will explain how to use exposure bracketing in photography.  The meeting will begin at 6:30 PM at the Women’s Center, Spalding Regional Hospital. Members as well as interested potential members are invited. This meeting is free and open to the public.

Have you ever tried to photograph a scene with areas that were very bright and other areas that were dark, and a lot of areas in between?  By using the technique of exposure bracketing, you can often create an image that is more evenly exposed throughout.  Art will explain how this can be done with cameras that do not even have the “bracketing” function, as well as with those that do. 

He will demonstrate how to post process the photos using Lightroom and Photoshop to create a new image. He will even demonstrate a process to get rid of that worrisome “hotspot” often encountered when shooting a sunset or sunrise.  At the end of the presentation, he will provide those attending with a guide to shooting and processing exposure bracketed shots.

Art and his wife Mary, who is also a photographer, love to take photography road trips as much as possible.  Like most others, they are always striving to capture that perfect scene; whether it is a macro shot, a night sky shot, or a landscape or wildlife shot.  Their photos have won awards in several competitions.  He loves learning, and his years in the Army and teaching public school have helped him share his knowledge of techniques and processes in photography.

Don't forget our theme this month: Lightening, Storms, and Night Sky.  Pick your ONE photo from each category and send them to Art at  no later than September 12.
