| p.1 #1 · Different Feathery Wings With Fill Flash... |
Hi My Forum Photographers!
Itís been very cold and the lakes are frozen. Yesterday they were closed due to snow. Today I went to one of my local lakes and found these two songbirds.
What do you all think about fill flash? Iíve never used it before on songbirds.
I bought a better beamer and attached it to my 7D with the 400mm on it. These birds were backlight. If I let the meter do the exposure, they would be silhouettes. If I used exposure compensation, the sky would have been totally blown out, no blue at all. By using some fill flash the sky remains blue and the birds have some color.
I need practice in deciding how much fill flash to add as these are my first attempts. It was difficult because they kept flitting around in the brush rarely popping up to a background with sky.

I am sharing a first songbirds thread with you all today! Hope you like them!
