Get­ting a good ex­po­sure with all the snow in the frame proved tricky. Ei­nar told me it was be­cause my D810’s me­ter­ing sys­tem was try­ing to ren­der the bright high­lights of the snow as mid-grey. He sug­gested that I use Spot me­ter­ing, to meter only the light on the birds as they swirled above our heads. This was eas­ier said than done, but once I’d me­tered off the mid-grey of the birds’ plumage in man­ual mode, I was able to fire away with­out wor­ry­ing that the me­ter­ing would darken down the bright sky, and ren­der the birds as sil­hou­ettes.
