In Topic: Metering for OMD-10

Hi ML,

What exposure mode do you use (P/A/M)? Do you use your strobes in TTL mode or manual? What lens? Maybe you can post an example?

If you use A with TTL the exposure is correct without strobes, and the strobes will submit only very little light - your pics are blueish.

If you are too far away from your subjects, the "warm" colours are filtered - your pics are blueish.

as Bill said: Shoot RAW! Don't waste your bottom time fumbling at your camera settings - you can do it later when shooting RAW. Are you familiar with this concept? (I know some photographers are not), but this is THE advantage of a digital camera. Plenty of infos available on the net. And don't be afraid, it is not comlicated.


p.s.: This comment is for stills.

If your camera has this setting, sync the strobe for the second curtain. This way at least any motion blur will be BEHIND the sea lion and not in front of it. Might even give some interesting results.

Thanks again,

@ Bill and Tom,


thanks! There are a few specialized hardware stores around Cologne, but instead of trying to find it there (stainless doesn't make it easier), I searched on ebay Germany and found it.


Life could be so easy if you US guys wouldn't be so stubborn and finally change to... METRIC!  :evilgrin:
