Epic Portrait in Three Steps

The next step is to expose for the sky. In my image below, you will see that the subject its too dark but the sky is perfect. So, how do we fix that?

The last step is to add an external light. This allows your subject to be visible while still getting the beautiful detail in the background and sky.
