My husband and son were fishing on Saturday evening. I say fishing, but my son thinks fishing is just whacking the pole on the water. I was losing my light pretty fast so I used a 430 for fill. I had tried to meter in several different spots, with camera, and the flash would completely overpower the scene: Blowing out skin tones but leaving everything else quite dark. I had to really dial the flash way back to get this one. My question is, where is the proper place for me to meter in a scene like this? I don't have a flash meter, and I have never used one, so that would be a bit over my head. Thanks in advance. Any advice or suggestions are always welcome.
Oh, this looks rather dark posted on Flickr. In LR and PS there is detail in the trees in distance. You still get the idea though... Sorry about that.
