Get Your Free Exposure Compensation Cheat Sheet

Exposure compensation is a tool to help you take photos that look the way you want them to look, but it’s sometimes a bit confusing.

As a concept, the term “Exposure Compensation” is kind of confusing because it’s not entirely clear why are we compensating the exposure, or what we’re compensating for.

Then, to make it more confusing, how exposure compensation works depends on the mode you’re shooting in!

So today I wanted to explain what exposure compensation is, why you’ll want to use it, and how to use it no matter what mode you’re shooting in. And I’ll explain how to use it with Auto ISO!

Your camera is an amazing tool, but it’s no good to you if you don’t know how to use it!
