Or, perhaps, you are at a loss why your background is perfectly exposed, leaving your main subject in the dark? Just what is exposure compensation and why would you want to use it? When do you use it? And, how can you use it to obtain pictures that are perfectly exposed in all areas of your scene? We’ve updated our tutorial on Exposure Compensation to include a section on High Dynamic Range.
