Shadows and Highlights: The Mark of Excellence

Shadows and Highlights: The Mark of Excellence | Jenn's All Things Photography | Scoop.it

In the Zone System developed by Ansel Adams there are 10 zones or shades from pure white to pure black.

 

If you take a close look at most exposure compensation settings; regardless if your camera is digital or 35mm, most of them only give you a plus or minus range of two f-stops. If the original setting that your camera uses (18% gray) is zone 5 and you can only expose at plus or minus two stops, that only gives you a visual range of five f-stops.

Amazing urban photography by Niki Feijen | The D-Photo

Amazing urban photography by Niki Feijen | The D-Photo | Jenn's All Things Photography | Scoop.it

“ I was born in 1977 in Eindhoven, located in the south of The Netherlands. Although it’s not my profession, I’ve been experimenting with photography ever since I was a kid. After a diversity of photography directions (Landscapes, Sports, Concerts), I discovered Urbex photography.


Urbex, short for Urban Exploring is according to Wikipedia: The examination of the normally unseen or off-limits parts of urban areas or industrial facilities. So basically visiting and photographing abandoned buildings, tunnels, industry, castles etc. Most of my shots are HDR shots, short for High Dynamic Range. HDR is perfect for low light locations but it has to be subtle."
