  1. Dear Prathap,
    If possible, I’d like more explanations about “Manual Exposure for BIF”. I’ve used Aperture Priority Mode and there is an excelent article written by Jim Zuckermann about Manual Mode x Aperture Priority or Shutter Priority(Photo Insights Apr 2013). However many photographers insist on Manual Mode and I don’t agree. Thanks in advance for your attention. Greetings from Brazil.

  2. Hi Prathap,
    I still get confused with ISO settings both the type to use for different situations and the number. Is it best to just leave this for the camera to sort out.
    Kind regards

  3. Thanks. All the topics covered pretty much contain all that I am interested in. Especially the bird topics..

  4. Hi Prathap,

    I will go to Antarctica soon and would like to take good photos of penguins. However, I am worried about getting exposure right, as the birds are black and white and it’s hard to get it right for both colors at the same time. Is exposure compensation the solution?

    Kind regards,

    1. Hi Kira,
      That’s amazing. I wish I had that chance too.
      It’s not easy always to get the exposure right for such subjects. However, I would say exposure compensation is your best bet. When shot from front they have more white than black. Your light meter will be tricked to believe it’s too bright. It will tone down the exposure. Try using +1 to +2 compensation. This becomes more trickier if you have white snow in the background.
      If the light is soft or diffused, you can get away the issues. You would get lesser dynamic range. This means fantastic exposure. If it’s too bright, I would suggest you to wait. Or, look for penguins in shade.
      Don’t forget to take test shots and tweak the exposure.
      Go for close-ups, textures, and details. Take behavioral shots. Remember to care for head angle. Include habitat.
      Have fun!
