Fun with Sunny 16

I’m having a little fun with my D800e and the 50mm f/1.4 lens using the sunny 16 formula.

  1. Since “Sunny 16” refers to manual exposure, I’m wondering if you used auto anything for these shots. How did you set up the beast to capture these images?

    1. Put the beast in manual mode, aperture at f/16, set my ISO for 320, and shutter at 400ms. The only auto was the focus, only because I’m blind as fuck when it comes to focusing. I’d check my histogram from time to time when I’m chimping. And then let them stew in the hard drive overnight. So on the next day I’d pretend that someone used my camera and took these god awful snaps. 😉
