Ok, so could somebody tell me how to meter for a for sillouette in a forrest like the pic below? I need it to be high contrast and to be able the pickup strong streams of light. I think I have an idea of how to achieve this but need to make sure I'm right or if there's a better way. I think you meter for the spotlight against the trees right? If anybody can help me out that would be awesome!!! Thanks. :)

I'm sorry the picture isn't loading.

I don't see the picture but in general to silhouette you expose for the brightest area letting all else underexpose.
