In Flight Exposures

Post Thu Nov 05, 2009 12:02 am


When attempting to get in flight eagle/hawk pics with a blue or cloudy sky I get a dark silhoutte of the bird. Is spot metering the trick? Any suggestions? :roll:

Yes, spot metering should do the trick. The big expanse of bright sky is fooling the camera's metering into underexposing (by at least one stop for a blue sky and two stops for cloudy).
