Re: Junco with a white tail
In reply to Trafford, Dec 15, 2013

Trafford, I have the same problem with some birds birds with smooth white areas. Buffleheads are my nemesis. If I expose to get some detail in the white areas, the rest of the bird is severely underexposed. Gentle light and shooting raw helps but still not good enough.

The only solution I can think of is to have the Junco place its tail in shadow
