A continuation of using telephotos to isolate sections of the landscape.
This shot is from a couple of years ago. I had gone down to the dock at Bluewater Park in Wiarton on the South Bruce Peninsula for the sunrise. There was a good display of autumn colour on the Niagara Escarpment so once the sun was up I put a super telephoto lens on the tripod and started isolating sections.
This allowed me to focus attention on the autumn colour while having a thin strip of water along the bottom of the frame and a small section of sky at the top giving the trees some context.
The rock edge of the Escarpment is visible center left of the frame with a couple of large boulders that have fallen from the rock face at the waters edge.
Alternatively, part one of using a telephoto to isolate sections of the landscape as this may be an ongoing topic.
For this shot I was on a local back road looking for Eastern Meadowlarks during the golden hour one morning. I noticed the low sun was illuminating some distant trees with patches of mist amongst them.
Having a long telephoto on the tripod I started framing some of the trees and mist patches.
An evening walk during week 37 saw me on a little used gravel road through the bush.
The low sun was shining through the trees and illuminating some early autumn colour on a tree at the side of the road.
Continuing my experiments of deliberate camera movement during exposure. For this shot I framed a group of thin tree trunks and panned the camera up in the direction of the trunks as I released the shutter.
The settings for this shot were an exposure time of 1/3 of a second with an aperture of f/5.6 at 100 ISO.
Several evening walks in cloudy, dull weather during week 33 saw me experimenting with deliberate camera movement during exposure. I was panning the camera up or down, trying to get the camera movement to follow the direction of the tree trunks.
I ended up taking quite a few photos over three evenings and discovered that the results were different each time due in part to the strength and quality of the light. The other variable was I used different lenses, apertures and changed the ISO between the evenings. Having had fun experimenting maybe I should make notes and try to analyse the settings I have used already.
The settings for this shot were 1/4 second exposure at f/5.6 and 100 ISO.
