Our plan B for retirement is to move to Bali, Indonesia. We both speak the language and love the country, people, food including the tropical fruits, landscapes, etc.

What is plan A?

I'm guessing the same as mine...Stay in the states until it becomes apparent that the politicians have succeeded in destroying the country completely :p

well if 40+ members of the Republicans have their way but I hope the remaining sane ones join the Democrats and work towards a fair road ahead... but surely this is getting off topic... ;) :p

Plan A is for some investments we have to "mature".... this may or may not ever happen. In Bali, we can live very, very well on our Social Security alone.

Let me put it this way, I know a couple who lives on Java, Indonesia who have a retirement income of $300 a month. Now, their house is paid for but they have a full time cook, 3 other maids (the wife designs abstract art that involves lots of sewing and other thread work and 2 of the three are involved in this. From what I understand, this is a hobby, not a business), a driver, a gardener who comes twice a week, and a carpenter on retainer. This on only $300 a month.

Hi all,

I've been having trouble using fill flash with my 60D in Av mode. Whenever I use flash in Av mode, the background gets blown out. That is not a flash exposure problem because this happens also when shooting outside when the background can be far away - beyond the reach of the flash. So, I understand that, when using flash, somehow the camera sets a wrong exposure in Av mode. The only solution I found so far is to shoot in manual. I know that many people prefer manual mode but this is not a good solution for me. Manual adjustments always take some time to make and I am loosing precious moments then.

Is there something wrong with my 60D or am I doing something wrong? I don't know if the same problem happens with other models. But recently I've seen a nite photo taken with 1Dx with full EXIF and detailed comments of the photographer. He used fill flash in Av mode and everything was exposed fine, both the main subject and the background. That's why I thought that this might be something specific to 60D.

If you're shooting against the sun, you want to expose for the background not the subject. So if you're in Av mode and metering over the subject it will blow out the background.

what is a typical shutter speed your camera is setting in AV mode?

it is shutter speed that controls your ambient light - so if AV sets your shutter to ... say, 1/30th sec then perhaps the ambient is too bright for that reason.

My guess is that if you shoot in AV, you will run that risk since you are not controlling ambient with the shutter speed.

but obviously more qualified folks should chime in ;)

This. You can definitely do it in AV but you need to expose for the background. Spot metering and exposure lock will help with this.

With a flash on the camera, the shutter speed will be limited to flash sync speed in Av mode. It often leads to blown out backgrounds. A better choice is Tv or manual. P also works if you don't want to think about exposure. Or if you need to use Av, set the flash to HSS (high speed sync).

This. The flash will take care of the subject.
