20/20 hindsight
« on: June 25, 2007, 05:27:26 PM »

Your at 11,000 ft., a cloudless sky at noon, with a canon xti sporting your new 17x85 IS lens.  Deep in the forest with ebony shadows and rays of sunshine blasting through the pine trees, you look up an there's an buck elk eyeballing you from those shadows 20 yds. away.

To have gotten the best image possible in those conditions, what should my camera settings have been?

Agree with MikeMike - go eother Aperture or Shutter Priority.  Me I almost always shoot Aperture Priority and almost never Program.

To cover my bases, what using auto bracketing in addition to AV?
