Hmm great video Dave, especially the centre weighted aspect, I always see stuff promoting eval or matrix, I think I might have to try your method and see how it goes. I do however use aperture priority for all my landscapes for exactly the same reasons as yourself. I have done your 1st course and have just signed up for your new course and really looking forward to learning more!!

Dave Clayton says:

I am with you all the way on this, you are absolutely spot on in everything you have said about exposure.

Dave, I've wondered if there is any benefit to using the exposure compensation button/dial over just setting the camera for easy exposure compensation (b4 menu) and just using the rear dial (no need for the EC button)? I have my D810 set for easy exposure compensation and don't use the button but this video makes me wonder if I am missing something.

Hi Dave, enjoy your videos and where they take us.
I'm lucky enough to live in New Zealand and have been exploring our back country in similar fashion to yourself for the last 30 odd years (note to self: sh*t time flies!).
Can't agree about AP. It's useful for some situations, but having used it for a number of years, I started using manual mode probably 10 years back and would never go back to AP. Put simply, using AP relies on the cameras metering behaving predictably when the light changes. I find I can do a better job, but it takes time to get good at it. I just adjust the speed (or iso) as though it were compensation.
A couple of benefits I like: it really helps me understand the interaction between my camera, the light and exposure because I make the decisions. Also, my workflow (and in particular bracketing) is always in the discrete steps I chose. Sometimes I cock it up, but very rarely these days. (less than my camera's meter!)
Anyways, keep up your good work, and thanks again.

New format is next level, my dude.

Grahame Stilwell says:

Great Video and content as always Dave! Looking forward to next Tuesday (Y)

Kaitlyn McLachlan says:

Been following for a bit, and absolutely love your intro. We could all use that reminder more and more! Very healthy outlook. Let me know if you're ever up in the west coast of Canada – would love to hike, camp, and shoot!

I've been a real estate photographer for many years, and in this fieds apperture priority is the only way to shoot your photos. I always shoot BKT with 3 or 5 images and 1/3 stops apart. I need a fixed DOF and thats why I only do A mode. I use Fujifilm X-T2 and just live the compensation dial right at my thumb…… your words are gold…. I love it.

Dru Wallace says:

Do you have a site where you show your photographs?

Scott McInnis says:

Thanks for getting back…
