Join Justin Reznick for an in-depth discussion in this video Finding a good angle to photograph the banyan tree, part of Landscape Photography: Tropical Scenes.
- Started this morning super early…to get to the Pipiwai Trail on the island of Maui.…International Park.…To view some incredible trees.…The trail's been beautiful,…and it led up to this very first subject.…A majestic banyan tree.…Turning the corner had absolutely took my breath away.…You know, I'm reminded that,…I'm more than a photographer.…I'm also somebody who appreciates nature,…and being in this environment.…So, the first thing I did was just kind of take it in,…and just, just say, "Wow."…And then I put my photographer cap on,…and did what I love to do.…
For a subject like this is approach it from all angles.…It's really a 360 degree experience.…I'm fortunate enough to have a nice, clean path…around the tree.…And so, in order to do that,…there's a couple things we have to keep in mind.…The very first are the settings on our camera.…It's dark in here.…We're under a canopy.…So, I'm at f/5.6, ISO 1600.…Really not ideal aperture and ISO for that final image,…but what it enables me to do is handhold the camera,…and just walk around and be free.…
