Ok, now I need to figure out how you do that. Gosh, its kind of embarrassing not knowing much about my camera and I've had it for months.

you know what the aperture and shutter speed is? either use a faster shutter speed (higher number) or a slower aperture (higher number). So if your light reading came as f8 and 1/80 seconds you could try using f10 or 1/100 seconds. Or both! See how that works.

I always try to err on the side of under exposing. That way in pp you can brighten it up a bit. Over exposed is more of an issue because you have actually 'lost' the detail in the blown out highlights and you can't fix that in pp.

Thanks, Saje!

Reggin, that also reminds me...
Use your Active D-lighting when shooting in the sun.
It'll allow you to keep at least some of the detail in blown highlighted areas...I believe.

Yes, I do know what that is, I just have to figure out how to change it. I'm thinking its the little dial? I've messed with that before, but didnt really know what I was doing at the time. lol. Thanks for the advice. I really appreciate it.

Ok, thanks. Now I need to go outside for a little experiment with my camera.

Thank you! I still have to learn how to use Queenie to her full potential.
But she's fun.
