How to photograph white birds, Birds in the news and a painting by a BC Young Birder!

1.One of my bigger problems when I started taking photos was blowing the whites. I usually got the exposure wrong and the picture was ruined. You can only fix the whites so much in photo processing.

Now I shoot manual and have virtually no problems it is all about the exposure and lighting and your angle in relation to the sun.

Here is a step by step guide on how to photograph white birds. I use these steps as well and it really works.
