I go with auto brightness.  It isn't always right, but then the rear screen isn't (IMHO) a good way of judging exposure.  The histogram is (for me) much more useful for this.  Similarly, I don't think you can assess colour well from the camera screen.  I shoot raw and leave assessment of colour for PP.

Sorry if that isn't helpful for your style of shooting!
