The Exposure Triangle in Action: Shooting an Eagle Landing

On this short and basic video tutorial by CreativeLive, photographer John Greengo takes a look at the exposure triangle when shooting an eagle landing on the water to capture a fish.

The exposure triangle is the most fundamental aspect of photography – understanding the relationship between ISO, aperture and shutter speed is one of the first things that any photographer needs to master.

Greengo looks at how the tree work together to create the right exposure to shoot a bird in fast movement.  If you are interested in shooting birds i flight we suggest you check out  Tony Northrup’s video on “How to Photograph Birds in Flight” which also covers the right exposure for this type of shooting (as well as many other aspects of bird shooting).
