Here's a summary of a question that I attracted this month: "I want to take good photos in here at this Washington, D.C. indoor auto show. What setting on this Canon mode dial can I use to do that?" In less than two minutes, what would your response be? Other than suggesting switching to the Manual mode and rapidly learning how to work with the very-variable lighting conditions, I didn't know what else to suggest. The problem was that the camera could not understand what to meter off of, so most of the photos were coming out underexposed because of the bright surfaces of the cars. Any dark cars were causing the camera to overexpose. What would other people do in this lighting situation? It was a real workout, because the overall brightness and car colors changed so often.
