Lighting and Exposure

Following on from yesterday's blog, these two anchors are outside the Lancaster Maritime Museum. They highlight the need to consider lighting and exposure. On the left the brightness of the illuminated sign means that the anchor is relatively darker. It isn't lit very well anyway but it would have been so much better if the sign hadn't been there. I could have moved around so that the sign wasn't in the background but it was easier to compare it with the other anchor. The light is better on the right and the exposure is much better. You can't always affect the lighting but it is good to be aware of the backgroundand have easy control over exposure.

Happy snapping
