Can someone explain to me why I keep blowing out my whites when taking photos outside? I'm sure my aperture, ISO or shutter speed is messed up but which should I adjust first? I'm not using a flash or any gear other than my d5100. I shoot mainly in A and M modes. I'll post examples if needed when I can get to a computer. Thanks!! - edit- http://m.flickr.com/photos/73913035@N06/6786927479/lightbox/ Ok, I've been around long enough to know that I need to post photos in the thread but I can't figure out how to grab the link from my phone. SO here is the link. I'm referring to the photo I took today (first one in the leaves) and in particular the blown out white fur. Though I'm sure the other photos have problems too. Will post the actual photo tomorrow. I just saved the photo that I uploaded to my Facebook earlier on my phone and uploaded it to flicker so I'm sure the quality is off... Doesn't change my "white" issue though. - edit 2- Wow I DID have a lot of magenta.. looks much different on a large mac monitor. i changed it from vivid to neutral setting also. i still think her left front arm is too bright but haven't figured out how to fix it.
