How to Use the Match Total Exposure Settings Function in Lightroom CC

Gary Detonnancourt

When you review a series of images in Lightroom you may notices that sometimes images taken just seconds apart from each other have different exposures.  This can be due to using automatic or semi-automatic shooting modes in your camera because the camera meters each shot individually and producing slightly different exposures.  One fix for this would be to shoot in manual mode and simply make sure you are starting with a good exposure, once set, it will not change unless you change it.  However, if you encounter this problem, Lightroom provides a simple solution for a post processing fix.  Check out the video below to find out how.
