I seem to be running into this more often than not. I would like your opinions on how you deal with it. Taking photos that one half is extremely light and the other half extremely dark. Example: a wedding where the guests are on the dance floor (darker) and in the foreground, white table cloths (lighter). No way to move to avoid this situation. If I expose for the white, I underexpose the dark, and visa versa. I find that I can correct in photoshop raw, but I'd prefer to get it closer in the camera. Any thoughts? Thanks, Daniel
