ExposurePlot is less a utility for the analysis of photographs than
it is a tool to examine your own tendencies and behaviors as a
photographer. Simply feed the program any directory–large or
small–of your digital photos, and it will summarize your
preferences for lenses, exposure settings, aperture and shutter
speed settings, and ISO.
What you end up with is a series of barcharts that track the
EXIF metadata most digital cameras embed in the photo file itself.
It can tell you more about your shooting habits than you realize:
Perhaps you favor a specific focal length of your lens; or you
might have a tendency to use a larger aperture setting than is
necessary to capture a shot. The results can be surprising, even to
seasoned photographers. For instance, it might help you decide
whether you really need to bring that extra lens on your vacation,
or if you should invest in a tripod, because you prefer to use a
relatively slow shutter speed.
Even if you’re not all that interested in studying your own
photographic habits, you can’t beat the price, and you might learn
something about yourself.
