Day 195—Tomato Basil Soup Anyone?

The Thursday Farmers’ Market at Mahaney Park is providing me with lots of photo ops. I started out using Aperture Priority with the aperture set to f/16. I was curious to know if my smart camera knew the Sunny 16 rule. Well apparently, it does not. I was quite surprised to see a photo of tomatoes in the bright sun to be overexposed because of a slow shutter speed. I quickly switched to manual and set the white balance to “sunny” and the shutter speed to 1/100 since I’d already set the ISO to 100. I could tell immediately that these photos were perfectly exposed. The proprietor of this stall at the Farmers’ Market is also a photographer and I’ve talked with her before about our cameras. In fact, I used a photo of her produce on Day 153, “Beets Me.” I think I’ll print this photo and run it back over to the market to give to her.
