This project is intended to make students familar with photographic metering. measuring the light in different parts of the image to increase or reduce detail where necessary.
In the case of these images, the desired effect was a correctly exposed sky, with a bold, black form in the foreground.
Students used a 'centre weighted' or 'Spot' metering setting.
The desired effect was achieved by placing the centre of the viewfinder on the brightest part of the sky, half-depressing the shutter, and recomposing before capture.
This is the first part of a 3 part project which culminates in the use of basic Photoshop composition techniques.
