Underexposing "green" scenes
Nov 4, 2009


More often than not, I find myself compesating green scenes (fields, plants, trees, etc.) with underxposing. Sometimes -2/3, other times even a full stop! I remember doing that with my 350D, so, my question is: is there anything inherently "wrong" with the metering in the presence of an abundance of green? Does it have anything to do with our brains' perception of greens, that I know it's different than that to blues and reds? Thank you for your contributions!
