You could try the step up shade ,I also use a polarizer on top of the shade to control the light ! Hope that helps !

I guess a higher shutter speed might help.
There should also be something called exposure compensation in your camera settings.

Yes,underexposing is probably one way to solve it.

I don't know how the light sensor on that camera works with the LB lenses but I know I have been flying blind whenever I use mine. Just requires some extra test shots and a solid understanding of f stops versus environment.

Best advice is simply faster shutter speed and/or higher aperture number.

Also @SuperThor great quote in the signature.

If you set your exposure to Av you shouldn't have any problem.

Unmon is right: "Everyday is a good day."

Agreed. I shoot AV/Ap and unless it is VERY bright sun, I don't have to mess with exposure compensation at all. The cameras seem to handle it pretty well. Otherwise, that's what chimping is for :D

In shooting with a Rebel XT on Aperture Priority, I've found that I have to expose at -2/3 EV if I'm shooting with strong side of back light. Somehow, the evaluative metering does not understand the scene properly with the lensbaby. When shooting in frontlight or in diffuse light, no EV compensation is needed (or wanted).

Shooting on M, you have to use the exposure meter to adjust shutter speed to get a correct exposure. Leaving it at 1/150 is not going to work in all lighting situations (nor will any other single shutter speed).

Best,

John

I use a Sekonic light meter with my Composer .. but I use a light meter often with my D90. If you try one .. you may find that reflected light to the camera's meter is a horse of a different color to the ambient readings generated by a light meter .. or not.
