About Eduardo Angel
Eduardo is an Emmy Award-winning filmmaker, a consultant on digital imaging workflows, producer of educational and technical content, and presenter. A sample of his clients includes Adobe, the Brooklyn Museum, Canon, Lynda.com, World Wildlife Foundation, TED, and The New York Times to name a few.
When it comes to exposure, there are two mainstream approaches. One can expose to the right or expose for middle grey. “Exposing to the right” (also known as ETTR) is typically achieved by using a histogram. Exposing for middle grey is best achieved by using a waveform monitor. Eduardo prefers to use the second approach, exposing for middle grey. He also discusses why he relies heavily on his X-Rite ColorChecker Passport Video on every single shoot.
“We can’t merely judge exposure by looking at the image, so we MUST understand where the values for that particular camera should fall, and there’s no better way to ‘measure’ them than the exact values provided by a X-Rite ColorChecker Passport Video and evaluate those values using a waveform monitor.”-Eduardo Angel.
