Getting the right exposure the first time
Jul 8, 2012

I just came back from a trip in DC. I enjoyed very much working on getting the right exposure. To do so, I used both the histogram and the highlight mode.

I often had to either under (mostly) or over expose.

I use aperture priority and I have ISO setting always in manual.

My question: is there a way to always get the exposure right the first time or must I always look at the results of a test shot in order to compensate?
