Photo of the Day

Curves, Lights & Colors
7 Jun 2008

Canon EOS 400D, Canon EF-S 17-85mm F4-5.6 IS USM, 27 mm
1/13s @ F/9, EC -1, ISO 400

Patterns in the ceiling of Isys Restaurant in the Hotel President in Jayanagar, Bangalore. The camera was having difficulty in focusing, so I had to focus lock at a contrasty edge and refocus. Since by default AE also locks with AF on half-depress of shutter, the image was coming out a bit over-exposed, so I diallied in -1 of Exposure Compensation to set this right. The alternative is to use exposure lock button (*) to lock exposure separately and then focus and shoot. Custom function 4 controls AF/AE settings.
