Thread: Indecent Exposure
October 7th, 2004 #1
I'm fairly new to digital photography, and own an Olympus C5050 digital camera.
How can I take a decent picture of the sky?
My pictures are always overexposed.
What techniques can I use to make sure I always get a good exposure?

you could try a few things...
first of all, use bracketing. This will make your camera shoot 3 different shots, one normally exposed, one underexposed, one overexposed. You can later add these photos together with photoshop, or maybe one comes out great as is.
Underexpose yourself, use like 2 stops less if the sky is really bright.
I don't really know your camera, but if it lets you use filters... get a polarizer filter, it will make the skies look more blue.
oh, and that tutorial might be come in handy, if you don't mind altering your photos a bit with photoshop.

Cheers for the advice NL,
My camera has got a 'bracketing' mode, so I'm going to give that a try.

A polarizer, and a red filter, perhaps?
The red will absorb the blue (and an orange filter even more) this will make white clouds stand out. Works best in B/W.
Here's a link with some examples http://www.photo.net/bboard/q-and-a-...?msg_id=000gTu
