Tech Tip

A sneaky way to brighten your photos.
If there is one thing bloggers can't live without,I think its the camera so it's worth posting this tip. If a camera has an automatic exposure, its lens acts a lot like a pupil in an eye. that is, its aperture automatically expands when it senses darkness, and contracts if there's an abundance of light. Knowing this, it's easy to manipulate an automatic exposure to let in more light. Simply place your finger over the lens for a few seconds. Sensing darkness, the camera will open up its aperture. As soon as you remove your finger, the aperture will quickly begin to close again. If you snap your shop within about 1 second of moving your finger, the lens will let in more light than usual, and your photo will be extra bright.
