Ok, a follow up question....several family members are wearing white (or light colored) shirts, sun comes out from behind a cloud, and you get this....
A completely overexposed, blown out frustrating shot. Besides wanting to scream and be able to control weather situations, what else can you do? I tried pp it, and can recover it to a point. Is there an easier way to recover without entirely blacking out the background? (I ended up figuring out that I can add a layer, mess with the exposure, then mask out the part I don't want the exposure changed on).
(I did have the sun cover back up with clouds and got several decent looking shots, fyi.)
Photoj, I read that you're leaving. You will be sorely missed. I know i've always appreciated your input on all the photos, and I feel I have learned a lot from you in the small amount of time I've been in the forum. Thanks for everything, and best of luck to you.
