Great Egret in some pretty natural 'studio light'

The cypress swamps where I shoot quite a bit have a very dense canopy with these spots where the sun breaks through and makes these sun spot lights, much like studio lighting…along with a nice dark background. I walked right by this guy and didn’t see him until I turned and looked back up the creek.

Please list any pertinent technical details or techniques to help others.


A really nice, Bob. Good detail.

Thanks, Terry…
