  its finding a middle ground between sunlight and flash. For example, you are shooting in the forest and hotspots are coming through. You use a flash with a soft box to get the subject closer to the hot light.

Set fill-flash, let the camera's metering system worry about it, bracket, and shoot RAW.

  One answer. Bracketing and depending on changing things with a raw file will get you there eventually.

  Greg knows one answer and Mike knows that W.S. answer is right. Surprised no one shoots it manually and gets it right the first time by light metering. If you bracket and are shooting someone you might miss an expression or emotion by trying to get the exposure right.

Absolutely.
That's the trade off.
You asked about the exposure, didn't you?
However, it improves your chances to catch that particular expression or emotion if you bracket. Because you know you will at least get the exposure right. So you can stop worrying about it and apply all your skills as a people photographer to get the right expression or emotion out!

  I thought this was a question, not a test. If you feel that your way is the only way to do it why ask others? There are many ways to achieve a result when it comes to photography

  so,you forgot your reflector.i hate that.
and russian roulette goes a lot faster if the gun is fully loaded,and being the polite guy I am,i always allow my opponent the first shot.
by the way,if a flash falls in a forest,does it still make a sound?
I would also think,scary,that you would want those dramatic hotspots.blazing shafts of light,yet the correct exposure on the subject,hmmm.
bit of misdirection there slick,sam

  Derek, or currently Derek, that's what I meant. You can go thru the bracketing or you can get your measurements and do it that way without all the bracketing.
Inferring that it wasn't a right way like there was a correct answer to it, but it was just one way to do.

  thick woods & nowhere to reflect, not a test and your style (the way you do it)is what they pay for. Just want to see where I stand in all of this. Like the butter on my popcorn, love it.
