Next Meeting Topic:

November 14, 2016: Expose to the Right by Fred Drury (NOTE DATE CHANGE)

Digital cameras have come a long way in the past decade; today they provide more resolution, lower noise, increased dynamic range and improved focus tracking to mention just a few of the improvements.  Film was designed to deliver roughly the same amount of detail in each stop. With digital the detail is greatest in the brightest stop, then decreases by half in each succeeding darker stop. In this talk, we’ll look at those differences and explain that to take full advantage of digital technology, you need to shoot RAW and ‘Expose to the Right’
