How do you meter with the camera to get this kind of exposure where the scene is strongly backlit, the background isn't completely blown out, there is a good halo on the subject, and the details of the subject are still clear?
When I try to do this, I end up missing at least one of the above. Either I get a silhouette, or the blow-out is so bad I cannot get any detail back, or some other drawback. This is shooting with raw.
Is this just the excellent dynamic range capability of the camera or is there a technique to achieving this effect?
