Brittany, Another wonderful composition. This really shouts the end of the Fall. That leaf still beautifully copper but with the obvious signs of decay, trapped in the barren branches, against that fantastic background. This one, for me, really shone in your gallery. Again, well done you, and thank you so much for sharing this inspirational image. Simon
Thanks a bunch, again appreciate it. YOU DO SUCH AMAZING work so I'm so happy to receive a comment like this from such an amazing artist.. Q. How do you capture the light through the tree's like you do in your photo's? I have tried so many times and all I get is that blasted ball of flame or half of it.
Brittany, Firstly you have to get a really good alarm clock, most of my sunlight shots are usually taken within an hour of sunrise. The angle of the sun through the trees is really important, once the sun is too high in the sky you will end up with "a blasted ball of flame". The best advice I have been given is to spend some time finding the right locations and then just keep experimenting and taking photos. If you want you could Google "Photographers Empheris", free to download for desk top computer. This will tell you the angle of the sun any day, time and anywhere in the world. Hope this helps. Simon
Awee Yes that does, I think I missed it by THAT MUCH <> LOL
Yeah the one day I tried it, I was up before the crack of dawn but after breakfast and getting the camera gear ready, well needless to say the sun must have been just a little to high, I was unaware that you had to be out there basically right away. I'll sure try again and use what advice you gave me. Thanks Bri
