Under-Exposed to Hold Details of Clouds in Sky

Setting exposure compensation to -1.0 EV will make the image dark for this test, but also hold the details of the clouds. In this test, Russell is not worried about opening up the shadows because he will use Lightroom on his iPad to handle those details.

Adjustments on Lightroom Mobile on DNG file.

  • Opened up Shadows all the way.
  • Brought shadows all the way down.
  • Adjusted exposure
