Mario on bird pictures I usually turn single spot metering on so that turns the center metering spot on.  Especially if the bird is in a tree I don't want to focus on a branch near it.  So it is in the center of my picture.  I would have to use crop to move it out of the center.  If it is close shot with 400 mm not much room to crop but I will try.  Thanks for the feedback.  ( The camera focuses better than I can)

I read  about this technique to use the histogram and overexpose intentionally without clipping the highlights, always in raw to obtain better pictures specially less noisie in the shadows.

In a recent travel to Cuzco I take this picture from the plane (some inevitable scratchs in the windows plane), as you see is overexposed. The picture was taked with a canon xs, with canon 18-55 mm, in 27 mm, iso 100,  f8, 1/60 sec, with +2 ev in exposure compensation, with aperture priority in raw…


What moves you to bw or color?

Posted on September 9, 2012 at 8:30am 10 Comments

As I´m gettin older (now 56) I love everyday more the bw pictures. Instead our retines has more cones (looks the colours) than rods (looks bw) so a little more detail can be see in colour, bw has some special enchanting that I still don´t discover what it is. Hope you can aid to me or at last express what…
