Digital capture with Canon EOS 1D, 500mm f/4 L IS lens, 2X II teleconverter. ISO 200. Evaluative Metering at zero: 1/320 sec. at f/11 set manually.
Here, I set the exposure manually so that breaking waves in the background would not cause underexposure of the subject. It is best to work in manual mode when you are working with changing backgrounds. This image typifies my style, and this holds true whether I am photographing flowers or mammals or bugs...

This wildflower was shaded with a large diffuser to reduce contrast. I then used a gold reflector to bounce light back onto the subject. Notice the classic BIRDS AS ART background... Is my style right for you? Maybe, maybe not. But one thing is for sure, those attending any of our seminars or IPTs will learn to expand their creative vision.
Best and great picture making to all,
