For today’s post I chose to share with you a series of Female Northern Cardinals. Although not as brightly colored as the males I find the female’s subdued colors to be very beautiful.
It has been my experience that the muted colors of the female are much easier to properly expose than that of the male. I find when photographing males my ratio of rejects are much higher because of the difficulty in obtaining good feather detail.
I hope you all enjoy this series. I’ll be sharing more of today’s shoot later but for now I ask you to pick your favorite and drop a quick comment. Let's see which girl wins the beauty contest :)
