Expose For The Highlights
In reply to Pudden Tame, Jul 5, 2009

It sounds like you're simply accepting whatever exposure the camera gives you. But you are the photographer. Matrix metering ust gives you a suggestion. Take control - don't simply be a camera monkey, doing whatever matrix metering suggests. You are responsible for determining the correct exposure for your subject. If that means you have to spot meter the yellow highlights, and set exposure compensation accordingly to put the yellow luminance where you want it, so be it.
