Perhaps you can give me some advice on your exposure technique because you always seem to nail it perfectly. Do you shoot in apeture priority or manual. Do you use spot metering or what metering mode do you prefer. For this shot did you use any exposure compensation. Are there any particular rules that you use when determining how much exposure compensation to use. I've always admired your exposure technique and it's always been a challenge for me. Thanks in advance.

Hung, sorry it took so long to answer...

style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000"The story on this image is that it was shot at the end of the day with fading light... my shutter speed was fairly low... My exif was: ISO 400 ~ F/7.1 ~ 1/200 sec ~ Center weighted metering in Aperture priority mode.

style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000"I only shoot in AP or Manual mode... manual mode only when I'm on a subject thats not going anywhere anytime soon and AP for just about everything else. I prefer center weighted metering for shooting vs Matrix or spot. (spot would be good for a full frame facial of a person however).

style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000"Another thing that is very important is post processing abilities and understanding what your limitations are with jpeg and that the sky is "almost" the limit in post processing with RAW. The latitude RAW gives you vs jpeg is incredible! I don't wanna be a preacher, but once a person see's the difference and the flexibility in Post processing... they'll never go back to shooting in jpeg. :-)
