Guys
I will be travelling soon and as such im going to be taking a lot of landscape scenery shots
The place im going to is very sunny but also a very scenic/green area
I am unsure as to what to do when im faced with a situation where I have a bright and sunny day and I have a small river with a lots of greenery around
Where do I meter from given that the sky is going to be very bright and the trees and surrounding will be quite underexposed due to shade
I have seen some topics where people do a few shots and then combine them so they have a few exposures from different areas of the scene into the one shot
Whats the easiest way to do that without moving the focus point.
I have a vauge idea which involves using the exposure and focus lock button, but am unsure how to use it
Hope that’s making sense.
Cheers
