I have booked another trip to the Farne Islands, last time hubby and I went we had very new Cannon 350D's his lense 170-500 mine 75-300. A couple of years later we still have trouble with exposures in extreme conditions..white birds, guano covered rocks and bright sunlight ..... we usually shoot in AV mode. This July I would like to have a better idea of setting to use. Our mid range pics were great..puffins on grass spot on! But I love gulls and kittiwakes........
We are not anywhere near expert with SLR cameras so please not too much jargon,
