Hey guys, I have a technical question here. Supposing you find a black frog fish (or anything with a black face for that matter), how would you go about shooting it? If you increase exposure, the background is over exposed. If you use just right exposure, all you see is a black blob.
Caveat: shifting the frog fish is out of the question. I'm shoot full manual. I'm not after a silhouette shot.

Ya lor, no matter how you flash it, strobe it, light it up, still no way. Any ideas?
