In this video on wildlife lighting exposure, outdoor photographer, Doug Gardner, explores the Shenandoah National Park where he shows you how to handle natural lighting problems in photographing the buck deer.

Doug demonstrates how to adjust for proper exposures in balancing sunlight and shadows in the hardwood forest. You will learn that on sunny days, you need to set your exposure for the highlight areas and on cloudy days for the mid tones. If a resting buck sits in shadows, you wait until his face moves into sunlight. The objective is always to avoid overexposure.

Join pro shooter, Doug Gardner, in the Shenandoah National Park and gain great wildlife photography tips and techniques on lighting.
