The Daily Photo #45- February 14th, 2016
By Tim Neumann of Softlite Studios.com
I suppose the normal person doesn’t like wet, foggy, cold walks in the morning, but I (definitely not being considered normal) love the muted tonal ranges that present themselves and the stark compositions that become apparent.
ISO 800 1/2500 @ f/2.8 – 70mm
As I considered the possibilities for this image, I noticed the band of white grasses located just forward of the lone tree in the scene. To me, it seemed as if that band of vegetation made a much better dividing line in the composition, than the tree itself did. I elected for a very short depth of field, shooting at a wide open f/2.8 and focused a little forward of the tree, letting the far focus limit, of the depth of field, include the tree.
