I read "Understanding Exposure" and wanted to try out some of the author's advice on getting proper exposures for certain scenes. I used Brother Backlit Sky (jeez, are we in kindergarten??) to meter these, taking my exposure reading by zooming in to a smaller area just to the side of the sun. Unfortunately, as you can see, the sun was still way overexposed: According to the author, this should have correctly exposed the photograph/sun and nothing would have been blown out. So, how do I do this in the future to get a better exposure? Do I meter from an area of sky like I did and then stop it down a bit more, or is there a more direct process like the author claims in the book?
