I need to learn how not to blow the whites. I did have the highlight alert " blinky " on but action so fast no time to review and adjust without missing the action.
Before the action starts, meter on something white in the light you have. Adjust the camera at that time. Periodically, check the metering, particularly if clouds come overhead. That will get you going. If there is nothing white in the area you are in, bring something white with you.
I agree with this 100%. There's a big white building on top of the main structure to meter off of and adjust your settings as necessary. Seagulls who are constantly diving into the water is another good source for a bright object to meter off of.
