Thank you for all your time and patience helping lot of people through this forum.
I am a beginner of DSLR camera usage and I have a Canon T2i. I have a question and I'll try to explain the situation/need.
Whenever I want to take a picture of someone in the family on our patio during daytime and the background has a beautiful view of landscape/grass and a nice church with a decent architecture, the face of the subject looks so dark because of the bright background/sunlight. So, how do I get the face of the subject and the background to look good without being too bright? Is it possible?
I have the following lenses:
18-55mm that came with the camera
Sigma 18-250mm f/3.5-6.3 DC Macro OS HSM
I'd really appreciate it if you could guide me step by step as to what settings need to be used. Currently I am avoiding taking any pictures from the balcony/patio during daylight because I always end up seeing the subject's faces so dark.
Thank you in advance.
