lightroom exposure and brightness sliders

Discussion in 'Digital Photography' started by gibsoncontrra, Mar 20, 2007.

  1. When the auto exposure button is ticked on a raw file, generally it is
    the brightness slider that gets moved and the exposure slider stays at
    zero. Over on luminous landscape forums, a thread said the brightness
    slider controlled mainly the shadows/darker midtones and to brighten a
    pic, it was preferred to use the exposure slider which will result in
    less noise being brought up from the shadows.

    A typical problem image is a landscape that includes some sky. What
    is "auto" doing? Does it analyze each picture like rawhsooter's alt e
    did? I like to use it as a starting point and am often quite pleased
    with the results. Should a tonal curve adjustment be used instead to
    handle high contrast images?
