1/320 s, f/4.0
I am SICK of blown out skies. I overexpose all the time. These shots are unprocessed. I'm shooting with a Canon S2 IS which has an fairly common but severly limited aperture range of 2.8 to 8. I *WANT* 1.4 to 32 but my life is full of ungranted wants. Given this handicapping condition my question for anyone that knows anything about this photography thing IS....
Will a filter help this? Even one of those funky half ND filters? Is this a metering issue? The aperture is f/4.0 on most of these because the camera goes to that by default I think. Would putting it to f/8 help at all? And do all these things simply set the shutterspeed faster? Is that all I need to do? Am I kidding myself here? Should I only be shooting in manual mode? Should I calm down?
