Hi there, I was out today setting up for a snow cross race and it was really sunny out. We tried a couple practice runs and I tested out my new 40D for the first time really today and I seem to have trouble getting the shot right. ISO 800, f/16, 1/2500 Canon 40D 70-200mmL IS USM lens I couldn't see very well on my LCD because it was so bright so I didn't find out til I processed them that they didn't turn out as well as I thought. It is underexposed, but my concern is if I exposed it a little more that the snow would be overexposed and leave my subject dark still. I just learnt how to use the light meter the other day (reading Understanding Exposure, not quite done, but helpful book), and it said before I took the shot that it was correct so what did I do wrong? We are doing the same thing tomorrow with same conditions, so any info would be appreciated on how to get both the subject and the bright background exposed properly.
