This is the Daily FRO fro March 5th 2018.
Today I wanted to play a little game called "Let's make up an exposure for a made up situation and play around with the settings in our head".
The situation is an okay lit gym for a JV girls basketball game where the only gear I have is a Nikon D5500 with a 55-200 but I have to shoot at 5.6 only. I set the scene with the proper exposure with a 2.8 lens and build the rest from there.
