Glamour Shot


While this looks like a fancy shot, it's actually a very simple photo trick I learned by accident a few years ago.  Biscuit is just standing right at the end of the barn with the sun (even though it's cloudy) is lighting his face.  


The camera meters on his brightly lit face which then underexposes the shadowed barn behind him.  You can see his face is a little overexposed in this bottom picture because the camera was trying to pick up some of light behind him.  For the upper shot I zoomed in with my telephoto lens, made sure the camera was metering his face correctly and bingo, his face looks good and the background disappears.  

Handsome Bikkit ;-D.

Already commented on Instagram, but I want to add that I like Biscuit’s hay necktie.

Shhh. . .don't tell him it's not a real glamour shot. He was giving you his best side and everything. 😊
