    Yeah, I keep forgetting to use EC. My A720 tended to over-expose a bit, so
    I just shot normal exposure in snow and it worked out alright. The XSi's
    exposure is a lot more accurate, so I find myself having to use the EC
    feature more often.

    Also, when I had more sight, I tended to use the center weighted option. I
    could just take a reading off the subject, recompose and shoot. Once again,
    never used (or should I say, seldom used) EC much.

    Oh, well, after a few more shoots in snow and arenas, it'll be habitual.

    Thanks, Paul, for the tip.

    Take Care,
    Dudley

    His name is Michener. He's not quite 2 years old, and his guide work is
    awesome.

    Yes, it can be frustrating. Canon's "Evaluative" mode sometimes gets the
    snow thing right, sometimes it doesn't. I'm finding it useful to shoot some
    pics both with and without EC. That way, I get a few that are exposed
    properly.

    When the light is just right, I can sort of use Live View to get the image
    composed the way I want it. In those cases, I can use the spot metering
    mode to get a good exposure. I tend to avoid center weighted now, since it
    takes me too long to frame a shot.

    It's just going to take some practice. I'm already getting more good shots
    than I did a month or so ago.

    Take Care,
    Dudley

    Michener likes to sleep as well. In fact, according to his puppy-raiser, it
    was his favorite activity. Here in Edmonton, we've got a kennel set up for
    his house, and it's got a nice, thick cushioned pad as the floor.

    He spends a lot of time in there.

    My daughter loved the pic; now she wants to take one of Mich like that...

    Take Care,
    Dudley
