CONTROLLING EXPOSURE HOW EXPOSURE AFFECTS YOUR IMAGES When you take a photograph, the exposure isn’t uniformly distributed over the sensor’s surface—unless you are photographing a subject that is absolutely uniform in tone. Highlights (brighter areas) in the scene reflect the most light, and the areas of the sensor onto which they are focused are exposed a great deal. Darker areas, such as shadows, reflect much less light, so the areas of the sensor onto which they are focused receive much less exposure.

When confronted with such scenes, you have to decide whether the highlight or shadow area is most important, then set the exposure so that area is shown the way you want it in the final picture. In high contrast situations such as these, use spot metering or move close enough so the most important area fills the screen.
