After spending the weekend in Yellowstone National Park and fiddling with my exposure settings, I decided to research some tips on achieving the perfect exposure.

Here is what I found from Outdoor Photographer:

  • Always try to get the best exposure while taking the photo rather than trying to fix it during editing
  • A photographer who uses Olympus cameras (I have an Olympus!) finds that center-weighted-average metering is most suited for almost all of his shooting (John Issac)
  • Check the histogram to see that the extremes don't get blown out
  • When shooting wildlife, try to meter directly on the animal to ensure that it is properly exposed
  • LCD screens can give a misleading, brighter preview
  • Consider the overall balance of light and dark areas within the frame
