Swans and spot metering

Recommended Posts

Many years ago in my 35mm days i tried spot metering and failed, decided to try it again with the mini computer Olympus call a camera, ime till learning to get the best out of it but enjoying learning.

A very nice set of images. I particularly like the second one.

Such an elegant bird .... the last image  is the best for me .. a cracker!

.The feather  detail is a little lost in the second one  for me I'm afraid... the first  is almost a classic pose  of two  swans  beautifully exposed though  I should have liked a little  more  dark water  beneath the edge of the reflection ... but tis just an opinion.

Aren't cameras a very  different  animal compared to the ones we started out with Mike ... I mostly use a Fuji X-T2  now ... looks like you are enjoying your Olympus....

Swans are so difficult to expose successfully.  You seem to have managed quite well here Mike.  The second image is the standout for me.  Nice work.

Sorry about the above post Clicker i could not see how to quote you so i tried a @----- but that stopped me from typing, i wanted Fuji but the sensor size meant the lenses would be too heavy, m4/3 gave me a good compromise.
