"Tricolored Heron Silhouette"
Thu 02-May-13 05:18 PM by ericbowles

Many times we face harsh lighting and struggle with solutions.

On a recent trip to the St. Augustine Alligator Farm, sunset was approaching so the subjects to the west were strongly backlit. It's always tough to come up with original images, so in this case I decided to create a silhouete.

This was taken with the Nikon D800E, 600 f/4 AFS, and TC14E II. Shooting settings were Manual exposure mode, 1/1000 sec, f/8, ISO 200. Post processing was minimal in Capture NX2. I left it in color to keep the backlighting color around the head.

Nice shot Eric! Reminds me of the Alfred Hitchcock silhouette! I like the little bits of color coming in from the fringe of the feathers. Different but works for me. Thanks for sharing!

Thanks, Mike. This is certainly not a technique I'd use often, but nice to have in the kit.

Thanks, Preston - I cleaned up some of the edge reflections and spaces where light was shining through feathers.
