After photographing tigers for so many years have learned a few lessons. Sharing this so that you may find helpfull.

When photographing tigers most of us can get so exited and thrilled that we tend to get lost in enjoying the moment and forget some basic things that need to be taken care of (myself included). When shooting a tiger you need to expose for the white areas on the face, they tend to easily get overexposed and blown out especially in bright light.

A good image can be ruined just cause you overexposed the face white areas. With digital you can always check the histogram and in most dslr you can even set to check overexposed areas in the image.

Happy Shooting.
