I've been shooting for abuot a year or so and have been having a hard time with exposure. so i've been reading about it, bought a few books and read a few things online and i'm kinda gettin there i just have one problem. everywhere i read it usually says something like "i set up my tripod, and i metered the scene, that indicated a wrong exposure so i pointed my camera at the sky/ground/other object which gave me a correct exposure reading as seen in the shot below" Now heres my question. say you're shooting a sunset and you just compose and shoot going by the reading on your camera. and it comes out too dark. if you were to point the camera elsewhere.. say the ground... to get a correct exposure of the foreground of the scene and recompose and shot wouldn't that reading make the sunset itself come out too bright while making the foreground prefectly exposed?? i'm still baffled on how that works... could anyone elaborate for me? sorry for the confusion heh.
