From The Darkness

I am one of those crazy photographers who love the really challenging shots. I was waist deep in the river as this bear worked along the opposing cut bank. He would dip his head in the water ever so often to look for salmon. It was getting close to sunset and the light was becoming harshly filtered coming thru the trees behind me. The light was creating dark shadows on the cutback behind the bear and a few hotspots right at the shadow line in the water where the salmon were holding. Salmon can’t see to well when the light changes rapidly and I think the bears know this and tend to hunt these areas. Most of the shots of this bear turned out too dark or two bright in parts as the bear moved in and out of the shadows. However at just this precise moment, the bear lifted his head from the water and into the right beam of light. An inch further away and the shot wouldn’t have worked at all. I underexposed the image by roughly 3 stops to only gather light from the brightest areas. Something you can only do quickly when shooting fully manual. The end result was fantastic. The water droplets glistened as they fell off his face gives this image so much life.
