Hi Neil,
I have the following question. Last Chrismas, when I took pictures of my family (of course insider), my nice asked me, if she also could take some pictures. Since I´m shooting with a Nikon D3s im manual mode, i wondered, how I could set the camera in a way, that even my nice could make good pictures.

I did the following. Camera mode A, dialed in -2 EC and since I’m shooting Nikon I also dialed in + 1,3 FEC. Could that not be quite an easy method for situations, when you have to be quick?

Kind regards,
Georg

Georg .. that could work, if you checked to see that the different compensations actually did give you correct exposure. Personally, I’d just put the camera in manual mode, and use TTL flash to give me correct exposure … instead of futzing around with exposure comp and flash exp comp.

Stunning images of your work. Need to look again, stop at some of the images to figure out what I would have to do to get similar results. I have learnt a lot from you at this site. Inspiring.

Neil,

Lovely set of images (which almost goes without saying).

One thing did strike me though… There’s a few images where the camera is at an obvious tilt which in itself can add to the composition, but there are some (particularly with water in the background) where I wouldn’t have been able to help myself and rotated in post so they are horizontal!

Is this something which you introduce intentionally or is it something which doesn’t bother you so much (the way it does me!). Obviously there’s no right or wrong, just wondered?

Mike .. apparently it doesn’t bother me much. ;)
But I do have to make a conscious decision to keep my camera level. Tendonitis in my right elbow from swinging heavy cameras around, don’t help either.

As an aside, here’s an article on tilted compositions in photography.

your photo showing the father’s (smiling) reflection in the car window is a fantastic result.
