Most people out there love using their camera. Itâ€™s great fun to snap away regardless of where you are or whatâ€™s in front of you. If you are â€˜most peopleâ€™ though then you probably just leave your camera on auto mode. 90% of the time this is the easiest way to photograph. However, youâ€™re missing out on a huge range of features on your camera, and, even if you donâ€™t think youâ€™ll need or use them, simply understanding them will make taking a photo a much better experience.
As you learn digital photography youâ€™ll find terms that leave you wondering what on earth they mean. One of them is exposure compensation and sometimes known as aperture compensation or Ev. A technical term, but if you understand it will help make some of those good images great.
