In The Forest
Our Picture This! assignment this month was “In the Forest,” and judging by the number of images we received it’s clear that readers love to spend time and photograph in the forest as much as we do. As you’ll see, the photos ranged from mystical to magnificent, with patterns, color, and light and shadow play all playing a part.
Picture This! – Our Next Assignment
In camera multi-exposure capability and on-the-fly exposure and processing compensation with Auto Gain combine to open up new doors to multi-exposure images in the field. Be it handheld or tripod mounted, layered images created through multi-exposure techniques can lead to some new ways to picture the world. This three-shot multi exposure of fireworks was made in camera with a Nikon D3X and a Nikkor 28-300mm lens with an exposure of f/7 at 3 seconds and -1 exposure compensation with Auto Gain set. For this assignment, and for those who don’t have in camera multi-exposure, layered comps made from planned shots are fine as well, as long as they stick with one theme or locale.
