The summer is a perfect time to practice using the “Sunny 16″ method of exposure. Sunny 16 is a way to determine the exposure of a scene without a meter. Seem difficult? It’s really not. Neil Chaput de Saintonge’s recent articles on Sunny 16 are chock full of great information that simplifies this technique and makes it easier to understand. With plenty of sunny days in July, it’s a great time to experiment with capturing images without the use of a meter. It’s a great way to impress your friends and gain a better understanding of exposure at the same time. You’re welcome to photograph any subject matter you would like for this assignment. The challenge will be to not rely on your in-camera meter to expose the scene. Good luck!
