I captured these images during my March 6th & 7th visit to Pennsylvania’s elk range. This bull was with the group wanting to cross the road that I posted March 9th. The backlighting and snow proved to be a challenging combination. By underexposing .7 steps I was able to retain the highlights while still capturing detail in the bull’s body.
Reviewing the LCD display frequently proves invaluable when shooting high contrast situations such as this.
Both of these animals were photographed in elk hunt zone 2
