I went to take picture at my niece's graduation, it was sunny, bright condition, so when we were at the field taking picture, i used fill flash just to take out harsh shadows in my niece's face..before i have to take picture, took at least 5 test shots, check out the histogram, adjust exposure companstion, and tilted the flash, so i was able to get a good exposure..(i took the meter off the sky) anway one guy next to me also taking picture with his 30D without flash...i think it was a brand new camera, i know im not an expert but i had the feeling that his exposure blown out, pictures is gonna looks bad....i was about to make a suggestion but hesitated because he might think that im just showing off....

the first 2/3s i thought this was gonna be how your picture got messed up somehow. I see people using all types of cameras poorly or in not the best way to get the best results but I say nothing, i just don't care enough.

Just a few days ago, I saw some people taking pics of each other near where I was. They were shooting in partial shade - what I would call "dappled" light - part sun part shade.

I pointed out (as nicely as I could) that the human eye wouldn't notice that, but the camera would and the pics would have bright blown-out spots.

I don't think they even understood what I was talking about; so I doubt they appreciated what I said.:(

From now on, I will say something if asked; otherwise I will butt out.:o

I also do not say anything unless I am specifically asked a question and then I will try and answer just the question but sometimes I do end up babbling on :-) Recently at a friends wedding in Italy, I noticed some faults with other guests and friends techniques and didn't say anything. I let my pics talk for themselves. What happended, they started asking for gear advice and upgrading their kit :lol: As if that is going to make a big difference. Understanding light and exposure, like you, IMHO is of paramount importance.
