Happy New Year… 2010!
Wow! I am so lazy. It’s been a year since I last wrote. I missed out telling you all on so many exciting shoots last year. But, first things first. Last week, I went to Digital Landscape Workshop Series taught by one of my favorite photographers – Joe McNally. Learned so much about landscape photography! Here are the tricks!
– Sunrise and sunset. Everything else in between is just a waste of time.
– Always underexpose. Try -1 or -2 stops.
Here is a picture from the 1st day sunrise. I believe I shot it 2 stops under exposed. Why? The camera tries to expose your picture to 18% gray. So if you leave it to the camera, the picture will be much brighter than what you see at sunrise!. Second, under exposed picture has more colors.
Go give it a try!
