Exercise 7: Part 1 – Weather.

In this exercise we had to take two images of three different subjects. In each pair one had to be in sunlight and the other had to be in shade. We were instructed to keep the wb setting the same and note the exposure difference.

Image 1a.

This is actually a sunlight image. The sun is behind the camera and throwing light onto the house. ISO 200, f8, 1/400 sec.


Image 1b.

The sun is concealed. ISO 200, f/8, 1/250.  This meant the difference was 1 2/3 stop.


Image 2a.

In sunlight, the image has more depth with shadow apparent. ISO 200, f/6.3, 1/320.


Image 2b.  

In the shade. There wasn’t too much difference here. Only 2/3 of a stop. ISO 200, f6.3, 1/200.


Image 3a

My long suffering daughter again! In the sun.  f.6.3, ISO 200, 1/800 second.


Image 3b.

In the shade with the same setting but a huge difference in shutter speed being 1/80. That makes a 3 1/3 stops.



Taking images in sunlight and shade makes a difference to shutter speed. Or aperture depending on which you want to work with. There is a very slight wb shift too. However it’s not particularly noticeable on first glance in these images.
