This photograph was taken on a day with heavy cloud clover, no rain yet, just dark clouds.  I have made exposure adjustments as well as possible and it still appears to be overexposed.  It was very overexposed on the initial shot.

 

EXIF:  AF Nikkor 70~210mm 1:4~5.6 non D Lens.  This photograph was taken at 100mm.

 

 

1/80s, f4.5, ISO 200, no flash and used CWA Metering.  I can agree with the slow shutter speed, however I am puzzled by the wide aperture setting.

 

Many thanks for comments/suggestions/solutions.

 

Rgds,

 

Tony

Tony, I checked the EXIF for this one and you have your exposure compensation set to +11/3 steps. This explains the overexposure you see.

First step for me was to check all of the photos taken with the D70 for EV,  All of them had an EV of 1.33 and did not suffer the same fate as the flowers.

In fact here is a photo of our cat taken with the same equipment, same day.  The white on his coat seems a little hot, but not totally blown out.  I wonder if there may be a problem with the white channel also.  I ran some tests here in the house by shooting a pair of my wife's white slacks.  They photographed very hot, that I had to manually override the EV to a -2 to look normal.  Again, no flash, only existing studio lighting from above.  I still have to wonder about the white balance.  Any thoughts will be greatly appreciated.

 

Rgds,

The cat fur looks quite blown out to me, and I had a cat with the same color scheme. 

 

It's perfectly reasonable that you might have a number of photos shot at +1.33 EV that still turned out, as that all depends on the scenes you shot.

Okay, then that confirms my suspicions regarding white being a problem for the D70.  I will be uploading a flower taken early this evening with a heavy cloud cover and a few sprinkles.  Thanks very much, Tony


Here is a photo of recent Fuschia blooms taken in heavy cloud cover, no flash was used.

 

Nikon D70 body with AFNikkor 1:3.3~4.5 lens.  Exposure Compensation was set to 0.EV.

 

1/30s, f.4.5, ISO 200, again no flash, Focal Length at 70mm and used CWA Metering.

 

Thanks for viewing.

 

Tony
