We often head out to the rim for morning animal shots. It makes for a beautiful drive, and awesome scenery. If we’re lucky we see animals… and even luckier if I get a good shot.
This particular morning we saw NO animals… but we did get some moody light, that made for some interesting shots.
The rain and dew provided cool back light opportunities.
I just loved the way the light streamed in between the trees. It created such a picturesque scene as we drove through our forest.
Maybe you knew this… but I recently learned it, so I thought I’d share.
Somehow, I assumed those sunburst photos I saw in magazines were Photoshop’d. I thought they had some filter or plug-in that they applied to a sun to give it that starburst effect.
Not so! Set your aperture on f/11 or f/16 and point at the sun. (I know, we were all taught not to point at the sun… someone’s been keeping this cool trick from us!). Hide the sun behind a piece of tree to obstruct the full blast of the sun, and move around until you see the starburst. Click!
