Photo Tip Tuesday – Any good photographer must know what their camera can NOT do?
Don’t worry, it’s not just your camera, but all cameras. What the camera can’t do is see as well as the human eye. You may be saying “well ya, I know that”, but here’s why it’s so important.
I’m going to spare both of us the nitty gritty scientific details (and there are tons of them), it doesn’t need to be that complicated. The human eye, according to some, can see a range of 15-20 f/stops in a given scene. For this example we’ll say our eyes see a range of 15 f/stops. Most cameras can only see a range of around 8 consecutive f/stops in a given scene. Translation – our eye can see more light and darks in one scene than our camera.
