    Kinda like high-key effect!

    whereas if you had used matrix metering, the camera would have tried to balance the exposures, giving you a middle setting that achieves no purpose. The person would be underexposed, and the background would still be overexposed.

    Fill flash is probably the recommended way to go, but I wouldn't say it's a "no brainer" solution.
    Same goes for PP/HDR... it MIGHT be helpful in some situations, but totally useless for others.
    One would still need to understand exposure first, then apply this knowledge when looking at a scene and determining how to capture it.
    Exploring! :)
