    Exposure Problem 8. Exposure compensation set incorrectly

    Applying EV compensation

    One of the most common exposure mistakes is to adjust the exposure compensation for an image and then forget to reset it to zero before shooting a different scene.

    Before you start shooting try to get into the habit of checking the metering and exposure compensation settings.

    But if you find that your camera is producing consistently brighter or darker images than you expect, check the exposure compensation value.
