    Such a fan of pics like this. I like when 1 person is admiring something.

    I only wish they were sharped. I gotta get quicker with settings when I see an opportunity. I get a little panicy cuz I know I have like 2-3secs before I lose it.

    Both shot with 50/1.8

    You need to do a better job of using the selective brush. I can see clearly that you brightened the girl in photo #1 afterward. And try to not to cut people off near their ankle or their feet. Do shin or thigh if you must.

    Selective brush is in LR. The girl has a halo around her, need to use the negative brush a bit around her so it's not obvious that she's been brightened up

    If you are too slow to get the exposure in manual mode shoot in Av.

    :hsugh:

    despite your douchebag "umm actually", the best way to "pop" subjects like that is to use lights and/or clip out the subject and edit it indivudually

    douchebag huh?

    just being honest. adjusting the exposure is diff than the brush isn't it?

    how will this help?

    AV was shooting pics too dark inside the museum. I had to overexpose most pics by 1/3 to 2/3 to get them to come out right.

    AV doesn't 'shoot pics dark'

    :rofl: are you kidding me

    if you strictly aperture mode and meter the whole scene, tons of times it would come out dark. shoot a sunset and let me know how it comes out

    i have to go manual when i need a dim subject to be bright

    you have a f1.8 lens? These should have come out much better. BTW your ISO is screaming at me. smells like 1600 on a rebel

    i think he's saying, its the eye behind the camera that shoots the dark pictures, not the camera. It does what you tell it to do.

    aperture mode is too restricting IMO. i'd rather full manual for shots that matrix metering will fail

    yes no kidding.

    No he's saying that the AV mode doesn't meter, instead your metering mode does.

    this is because of your meter settings, not because you are in aperture priority or shutter priority.

    His pictures were underexposed and he bumped it up in post, hence even if he took that picture at ISO 1600 you can't really compare it to other camera's ISO 1600.

    that depends on your camera and how you massage it's settings. im saying that if the auto meter sucks for a scene, the autometer sucks for a scene, its not because you are in ap mode or whatever. use your brain.

    I personally hate to use spot metering on a camera with less than 99% view finder coverage. 9 out of 10 times, actual focus indicators don't line up with viewfinder's etching or overlay. :hs:

    This is also the cause for many OOF pictures in these cameras.
