Thread: Overexposed?

    Default Overexposed?

    Hey all,

    Need help again. =p

    Is it very difficult to take shots indoor with daylight as your background? I.e i always tends to get overexposed spots in regions where daylight filter through and when i try to correct these, i get underexposed foreground. =(

    How do i solve this without using flash to lighten up foreground and still capture the daylight lit background?

    Regards
    Troubled with exposures....

    the lighting ratio of outside scene and indoor scene are far too great for the camera able to handle

    use flash, or forget the background,

    else photoshop

    like catchlights mentioned, fill-in flash should do it...

    overexpose the foreground while udnerexposing the subject's face.
    Then use a flash with a diffuser.
