Howto do this?
Jan 22, 2012

I've read this nice article about creating nice picturs in bad weather:

http://www.dpreview.com/articles/5131093383/petes-travel-tip-2-great-shots-in-bad-weather

but I don't get it how to set my camera. I think I miss something.

The writer says that he underexposes the background but set's the camera fixed at 1/250/5.6 iso 400.

What should be the workflow to create such a picture?

Should I first measure light without flash. Set the camera to manual at the measure settings and underexpose 1 stop?

Then create a picture with my flash ON and check the result? If the forground is underexpose, adjust the flash exposure?

It that the way to go?
