If I had to wade through all these steps each time I took a shot and weigh the pros and cons of exposure I’d never get anything shot. Capturing the moment is doing it doing it within the next maybe 1 minute not by the next snow fall. Learning all this and committing it to memory isn’t going to be that easy either. Shoot the shot and the scale back the shadows or adjust the highlights in post. If you taking pictures that are that severely over or under exposed, you might consider going back to your cell phone
