This weeks photo was chosen because I love sweet potatoes and because Kyle composed and properly exposed a very nice shot despite a tricky lighting situation.

Backlighting and matrix metering don’t usually mix well. The bright areas of the background will cause the meter to tell you to underexpose your main subject, Kyle solved this issue by having his camera in spot-metering mode. With his accurate meter reading, Kyle captured this photo at iso 2000, at 1/100th of a second and an aperture of f/5.6.

The 1/100″ shutter speed allowed for a nice amount of blur in the falling potatoes.

If I could wave a magic wand and fix one thing about this photo it would be the placement of the third man hiding behind the pan. [contextly_auto_sidebar id=”TKG4HHbgcE3GwkI5zX9iQilxcuqzRsv4″]
