Hello everyone,
I was asked to take photos of a Soccer team yesterday.
I had a terrible experience. It was a very sunny day, no clouds at all. I had found a tiny tree and had the kids pose under it so I could get there faces not too washed out. Well, it didn't work. The shade was fine but behind them was very bright, blown out grass.
I am a novice at this and I was wondering if someone could help.
I have a d70. I need to know how to set my camera to not blow out the grass (or their white team shirts for that matter)
Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks, Allison
