Please, a bit of advice. I love shooting shore birds, both still and in flight. Many are snowy white. I shoot with a D7200 and a Nikon 200- 500 lens, that I love. But regardless of lens, I still have trouble capturing wing and feather texture without a white wash out. I try to keep the light behind me as much ss possible. I can do a good bit with PP, but more advice, sources, appreciated. Thanks in advance great UHHers.
Shoot in raw, us a good editing program like LR Classic CC and you can recover your whites to reveal detail. If you shoot jpg, this isn't going to be as easy or impossible. Matrix metering is best to meter the whole scene.
