Let there be light
A wildlife and conservation photographer will conduct an online workshop to dive deep into the subjects of metering systems and exposure compensation

Their upcoming workshop titled, Know your exposure metering, intends to equip participants with the skill to measure the amount of light falling on or being reflected by a subject. The session will be conducted by well known wildlife and conservation photographer Soumabrata Moulick, whose work has been featured by widely-acclaimed national and international platforms, such as National Geographic, Sanctuary India, Saevus, BBC and RoundGlass Sustain.
"How our eyes see light is very different from how the camera sees light. The metering system is typically the eye of the camera that helps it calculate the exposure in a photograph," Moulick explains. He adds, "When you throw a scene in front of the camera, it tries to balance all the tones, but if you need to brighten or darken the scene, exposure compensation is used, which instructs the metering system how much light it should allow. In the session, we will discuss this in depth." Anyone with a good mobile phone or camera can join in.
