Hi Jack, I realize you guys are selling a product, and have an interest
in promoting it. I'm not trying to put down the product, as I am sure
the automation can be useful for people who do not have a lot of Photoshop
experience. However, using this example, is not the best way to light a
portrait using the sun as a back light. The proper way to do it would be to
meter for the sunlight falling on the hair, then use a flash or preferably
a reflector to bring the level of light on the face to the same reading
as the hair, then you have no unpleasant shadows to deal with. If someone
happens to err, and needs to fix the exposure later, I can see the need,
but I don't see your product as an advantage to shoot something incorrectly
then "fix" it later.

        Best Regards,

        Tim Schooler
