BIRDS AS ART ON-LINE Bulletin 62 November 11, 2001

SW FLA Instructional Photo Tours 
Exposure Notes
 All of the images here were made while teaching SW FLA IPTs.
All images will include the exposure compensations that I used to make a properly exposed image. The folding laminated Pocket Guide to Canon Evaluative Metering that we are working on will feature 60 images along with suggested exposure compensations.  We hope to have them available within two months.

Southwest Florida IPT

This was the location of the first Instructional Photo-Tour that I ran.  The single participant on that tour, Mark Epstein, who now works as a ranger at Merritt Island NWR, has--like many others after him--gone on to great things; he has had several images in recent Inner Reflections calendars! Congrats Mark.

Evaluative metering +2/3 stop for very light background and overcast conditions.

Photograph Copyright 2001  Arthur Morris/BIRDS AS ART              Roseate Spoonbill, Ding Darling NWR, Sanibel Island, FL               Evaluative Metering -1/3 stop to preserve details in white head and neck.
There should be great opportunities for both spectacular photography and for additional personal instruction in the field. We will visit Ding Darling NWR, the Sanibel Island Fishing Pier, the Venice Rookery, Blind Pass Beach, and possibly Little Estero Lagoon.  The 5-day tour may include a visit to Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary.  Ellen Anon will be along to assist and to provide additional personal attention for new photographers.  Please do consider joining us, and do call or e-mail for additional information.
