    Hi Cafe,

    I recently finished a book on light exposure and came away from it more confused. :confused: The author says to take a picture of a subject like a tree in snow, take a meter reading from the blue in the sky, and readjust to take a picture of the tree using the readings. I tried this a couple of times and either had extreme over or underexposure on my images. Unfortunately I deleted the images but I can take more as examples if needed. I am using a D70s for my work. Also can I adjust the color metering on my camera to get a more "saturated" image, color wise? How do I meter the light of my ABs 400, and other strobes to get the proper reading? One last thing, do I make a preset WB adjustment for images (primarily IR images with a Hoya 72)? Thank you guys for all your help!
