The examples he outlines are as follows:

  • Overexposing the Moon
  • A Bright Sky with a Darker Landscape
  • Bright Windows
  • Shooting in Fog
  • Shooting in Snow
  • Flash Reflected by a Shiny Surface
  • Extreme Contrast

Zuckerman gives photo examples of how to deal with these common exposure problems, along with images to illustrate exactly what the problems are. He also throws in a bonus tip regarding JPEGs.
