This week it’s a question and answer episode. We talk about what to do about children blinking in photos and metering for portraits.
The first question is from Florian. He asks what to do about his “photographic kryptonite.” When he takes photos of his friends and family, they are very often blinking. Is there something he can do about this? We talk about some things he can try. Maybe slowing down will help? Alternatively, maybe it will help to speed up and use burst mode. Florian is doing a 365 Project and sharing photos in the TWiP Family 365 group on Flickr. I ask him about how his project is going for him.
The second question is from my sister, Maureen. She is also doing a 365 Project this year. Recently, we were working on our photos for the day together. Maureen was taking photos of my niece and we were talking about metering for portraits. What metering mode should she use to get a good exposure outside. To get me to answer her, she had to ask her question for this episode. Of course, I also asked her about her 365 Project too.
I’m doing a daily photo project. You can see my project and the 365 projects of other TWiP Family listeners in the TWiP Family 365 Project 2016 group on Flickr. It’s not too late to start a project. Join us.
