Caption: Two boys
holding soccer trophies with mother and father.
Technical data: Photo taken with an Olympus digital SLR camera and
Zuiko 14-54mm f2.8-3.5 lens; hand held, available light with auto
fill-flash, small plus flash exposure adjustment. Approximate exposure
in manual mode 1/250 second at f8.0 - ISO 100, WB manually set to 5600.
No lens filters were used.
Photo file was routinely optimized
using Photoshop; levels and curves, color balance, sharpening and
cropping. I use a Mac for all photo processing.
Comments: This was a straight forward photo taken after a soccer
championship. Bright overhead sun was causing facial shadows so
fill-flash was a must. After manually metering off the grass I turned
on the flash and added about 2/3 of a stop of "plus" flash compensation
because of the overly bright background. Bright backgrounds can fool
the flash into underexposing somewhat.
When making fill-flash photos
on-the-fly without time for careful measuring I usually take my best
guess with flash compensation, make a few pictures, then make a few
more using no compensation. That usually yields at least one or two
photos I can live with.
