How do you handle photos like this?
May 6, 2012

There was a six-stop difference between the light on Matt and that in the window behind him. I exposed for Matt. What are other ways to deal with this sort of situation? Expose for the window to get silhouettes? Hope that Matt stays very, very still and get a two-exposure HDR image? I'm a complete novice when it comes to my understanding of lighting, so any tips are appreciated. Thanks!
