My first goal is to have some cockpit shots in a Cessna 172.
The shots will be most probably taken by a passenger in the back seat (I'm still a student pilot; the only other chance to have pictures when flying is that either my instructor or me take a pause in the lesson).
The second goal is to have some cockpit/landscape shots when doing spins with the aerobatic instructor on a CAP 10...
Our equipment is a digital Canon PowerShot A410 and a Canon EOS 500 with 28-80 zoom lens.
Do you think this is enough?
If so, how can I get a balance between the darker instrument panel and the brighter landscape, without underexposing the first or overexposint the latter?
Just to explain my thoughts, I'd like to get something similar to the photos below.
Many thanks in advance,
