Went out for a late night drive with Vee to catch the meteor shower. I didn’t see any meteors, but I managed to catch this night shot. The illumination of the lower clouds by the lights of the city contrast nicely with the stars above.
Before the shoot, comes the prep. Gearing up for a 3 camera shoot, utilizing an all Nikon lineup: D800e, D600 and D7000. All cameras are set to match each other (picture style, white balance, and movie settings). The Nikon D800e and D600 have 1.5x crop mode, so if I want to match the focal length of the D7000’s DX crop, I can.
Imagine Waking Up to This Every Morning! von Mark Stevens Über Flickr: While the black & white image I took had a rich tonal contrast, the color one with this image I found brought a different set of contrasts. On the upper peaks and the left portion of the image was the golden glow of the morning sunlight. The clouds seem to wrap more of that golden glow in the peak of the Big Sister in the far backdrop of the image. On the backside of the mountainside though were textures of the rocks and layers still hidden in the shadows.
