California wildfires (yet again) - The Big Picture - Boston.com I was looking on the net for some photo inspiration and found this shot and thought it was awesome. Now I'm wondering how you get it. I was thinking you put your camera in manual mode, read the exposure from the sky and make your settings, then focus on your subject and shoot. Is that right? The reason I'm asking is because on my way home everyday i have a similar scene that presents itself and I wanted to snap a photo of it. Any advice?
