Snowy Egret Head Shot
Here is a headshot of a Snowy Egret from my last trip to Bolivar Flats. He was too close for anything but a close up at 700mm. Didn’t want to try to take off my 1.4x so I settled for a close up. Had to use negative exposure compensation to keep from blowing out the whites. I used to use spot metering a lot but am switching to using evaluative metering and adjusting the manual exposure compensation to keep the exposures accurate when they move around.
Taken with Canon 7D and Canon 500mm F4 IS II and 1.4x III teleconverter mounted on Skimmer ground pod with Wimberley II head
1/1600 sec @ F8, ISO 250, evaluative metering, -1 exposure compensation
