I returned to this stone and tree location to try another photo. This time, instead of clicking a photo quickly as I was walking past, I took my time and set up the shot with a tripod. I am thinking of printing this one to hang on the wall in at Blueberry Buddha Recording Studios (I’m also a recording engineer).
This one is a blending of two photos, one shot for a general overall exposure, and the other exposed for just the foreground tree. I then simply blended the foreground tree in a bit, a sort of handmade HDR to create a little more dynamic range in the photo. I could have also done it by illuminating the tree with a flash, but was happy with blending them as well. Whatever works.
Equipment: Nikon D7000, Tokina AT-X 116, Feisol tripod.
