hello everyone. i'm writing to request some help.
here's the thing:
i recently took some photos of clouds, and during pp, i noticed that my clouds were grey, rather than white. when i tried increasing the exposure to make the clouds white, highlights got blown off. i searched the net and here for tips on how to photograph white, bright subjects (like snow), and all said to overexpose by 1/3 to 1 1/3. somehow i cant seem to do this in pp (i know i wasn't supposed to)...
other than using HDR technique (i try to refrain from this as far as possible), is there a way for me to capture photos of white clouds without underexposing any other less bright objects in the photo?
case in point. this is what i took recently at changi. i expose for the sky, and it turns out like dis.
and after processing, this is what i got.
as u can see the details in the clouds are overblown. i apologize if my question sounds too noobish.
