Want to know just how good your camera’s exposure meter really is?
I wanted another image of this room but this time facing directly at the window. Just like the last shot, I wanted a dreamy, high-key type of exposure with the light diffused by the window and shear drapes. I also wanted the rich texture of the wood floor and details of the hats and chest of drawers to be clearly defined. Talk about a high contrast scene.
One way of going about this shot would have been to bracket a few exposures and process the image using an HDR program like Photomatix. But I wanted to see if I could meter off the floor and not completely blow out the window’s highlights. I finished this off in Photoshop Elements using Nik’s “Glamor Glow” filter to add some warmth to this high-key image.
