Rocks and Feathers

The ubiquitous rocks and feathers, found daily on our beaches. These are quick grab shots, but they inspire me to do a complete series in a more studied manner. You know what the tough part is about photographing feathers? The shaft of the feather invariably is pure white at the lower end. Meter for everything else and that light, white part loses all its detail. Expose for the white and everything else goes really dark. My solution is going to be a combination of multiple exposures, bracketing, blending, and cloning. ©Carol Leigh

Can't wait to see what you'll do with these yin/yang beach photos. Hard/soft. White/dark. Great shots. Thanks, as always, for sharing what's going on with your thinking.
