Little Black Calf

Little Black Calf


When you visit a farm in the afternoon, everyone is calm and most of the animals are laying down. This little black calf was no exception. It watched as I approached but stayed where it was, allowing me to get this excellent shot.

On a side note, when I checked the back of the camera, many of the frames were looking overexposed. I had been using spot metering for precise exposures in certain situations. This time it backfired on me. The camera saw the black, thought it was too dark and adjusted the exposure to be brighter, causing overexposed images. I changed to center-weighted metering and got properly exposed pictures.

In the best light…
