Snowy Plover – Directional versus Quality of Light

January 18th, 2016

It was just after noon that I came across this Snowy Plover today.  So the light was not the typically sweet morning or later afternoon light that warms up an image, that I like.  But by putting the sun directly on the face and eye of the bird I was still able to get a workable image, without too much contrasting shadow below the main subject.

This image was created at 1/640 of a second, at f/7.1 and ISO 250.  With the handheld Canon EOS 7D Mark II and the EF 100-400 mm f/4.5 – 5.6 IS lens.


Enjoy  Thanks Tim
