An alpaca I met at the Auburn Home Show on Friday looks warily at me and my camera. A pair of alpacas, one black and one white, were at a booth displaying items made from the wool of a small herd of alpacas from the Oakawahnee Ranch near Oakhurst. I discovered that photographing this pair of high contrast creatures in high contrast midday sun was a difficult challenge. If I exposed for the the black, the white alpaca was blown out and if I exposed for the white one, the black alpaca was in deep shadow. This is the only photo that I was pleased with because I only had to expose for one alpaca. I love the expression and the reflection in the eye.
