As the weather was very nice today, I found it convenient to take a short walk outside and slipped the G1X into my pants pocket* to grab a few shots along the way. Nothing particularly great about these shots; the G1X was in Av mode, JPEG only, ISO 100 or 400. Exposure compensation was used to tweak the Av exposure – sometimes based on the histogram but more often as an adjustment for a second shot. Exposure compensation for the above shot was +1/3.
As a measure of my humility, the above flower shot just didn’t work as I thought it might. No exposure compensation. My idea was to focus on the foreground and have the middle and background fade to extreme blur. The largest aperture for that focal length was f5 and it simply was not enough. Probably needed more like f2.
Staying with 16:9 aspect ratio, the above shot (which I call “Tree and Clouds”) was at full telephoto and f5.8. No exposure compensation.
Back to a 4:3 aspect ratio above. No exposure compensation.
I get tired of people taking pictures of ducks. These are geese. Taken using the 1.9x digital zoom feature. No exposure compensation.
Staying with the 1.9x digital zoom but –2/3 exposure compensation.
A nice walk with a little photo practice along the way.
