Ok, I finally received my LB Composer and started using it immediately. The first 2 or 3 shots were fine, not great but fine. No problem there since they were just a test. After trying different inserts and apertures my images started getting completely blown out, nothing but white. I could barely make out my subject. I was shooting outdoors with the sun behind me around 5PM. I tried the largest aperture, even the pinhole, and everything was still washed out. I am using the Canon XSi set to AV mode. What am I doing wrong. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Don,
I would recommend shooting in manual mode. Expect an outdoor with sun exposure to be around 1/1000th-1/2000th sec with the f5.6 aperture at ISO100. Take some meter readings first for normal exposure (center scale)and utilize the histogram view if your camera supports that.
