Hello Everyone,
As most of you know I have the new D50 with the kit lens and I am a rookie. I also have a circular polarizer.

I am going to be taking pictures of moving skiers on a bright day this Saturday. I understand the basics of the exposure but my question is what do I want the white balance and the meter set on?

For WB do I want to custom set it based upon where I am? I have not done that yet but I think that you just point it at the white snow and set the WB to the white snow in the PRE mode. Is that what you would do?

I read an article on-line that talked about not relying on your camera's automatic meter to meter a snow skiing image but to preset the meter. Can I do this with a D50? How do I do this? If I am going to try and take pictures of the skiers going past me (panning) what should I have the meter set on (spot, matrix, or center) and what should I be metering (sky, skier, or snow)?

Thanks!!!
Dan
