S90 shooting in bright light
Jun 27, 2010

Hi Folks,

I have had my s90 for about a month now and am very happy with my results over all. My last camera was an ancient s400 which produced some stunning shots over the years, but it was finally time to move up to a camera with more controls.

Recently, I found myself shooting in heavy shade with brilliant sunshine using P. The attached photo actually cleaned up quite nicely in post using iPhoto by playing with the shadow and highlight sliders.

My question to the forum is: what strategy do you employ to get better shots initially when confronted with bright sunshine and heavy shade in the same photo?

I've been "lurking" here for a few weeks and I wish to thank you all for the excellent advice. I've learned a lot.
