Preparing for CPP Certification: Exposures and Meters


EXPOSURE AND METERS (15%)
Items measuring this set of specifications will include (1) how to meter for the correct exposure; and (2) the relationship between shutter speed and f-stop.

Preparing for CPP Certification: Exposures and Meters – Section A

A. Employ a light meter properly to achieve desired exposures. (6 items)
1. Knowledge of proper use of incident, reflective or spot meters
2. Knowledge of the conditions under which meters should be used
3. Knowledge of how to interpret light meter readings


Preparing for PPA Certification: Exposures and Meters – Section B

B. Set f/stops and shutter speed based upon exposure and desired effects. (5 items)
1. Knowledge of relationship between shutter speed, f-stop and ISO to produce the desired result
· f-stop for depth of field,
· shutter speed for stop action,
· dragging shutter,
· control of noise or grain
2. Knowledge of equivalent exposures
3. Knowledge of exposure compensation relative to lighting situations (light ab- sorption and reflection values, skin tones)


Preparing for PPA Certification: Exposures and Meters – Section C

C. Verify proper exposure. (4 items)
1. Knowledge of how to use a gray card to achieve exposure value
2. Knowledge of how to read and interpret a histogram
3. Knowledge of exposure compensation (bellows factor and filter factor)
