    Kodak Ultramax 400 - Green and Murky

    I've recently invested in a Canon EOS 50e film camera. I shot through my first roll of (fresh) Kodak Ultramax 400 on aperture priority, not using any exposure compensation, and got them developed and scanned by a third party.

    Any tips on photos of black objects? Never quite right to me.

    I do some product photography and always find trouble with black objects. If I don't have a good amount of lighting on the subject, it will be dark and I have to raise exposure and various other brightness settings. When I do this, it tends to draw out ugly features like splotchy color patches...

    D500 Exposure Meter

    Anyone else have mild issues with the light meter in the D500? With indoor shoots, mostly with low light, I find the meter in the camera to be perfect or close to and the preview on the back looks good. Then when I go to post, I find myself bumping the exposure by a full stop! Maybe calibrate...
