Join Justin Reznick for an in-depth discussion in this video Photographing the massive banyan tree, part of Landscape Photography: Tropical Scenes.
- Alright so this is the first composition where…I'm taking my time,…setting it up and stabilizing.…We've got the tripod, we've got the ball head,…camera on an L-bracket, mounted nice and secure.…Everything feels really steady.…I've got the remote shutter so that as I take the image…I won't be touching the camera at all.…So all those things are going to stabilize…so I can get a sharp image.…Next, remember when we handheld we had a setting of F5/6…and ISO 1600.…That is not ideal, we want to be at base ISO of 100.…
So I'm going to take the ISO down to 100,…and I'm going to take my aperture…to the perfect depth of field.…So the question is, what is that?…In this situation,…I don't have anything too close to me in the foreground.…For this setup it's not so much…about a foreground/background relationship,…it's more about from here…I feel like I'm getting the most reach…of all the branches and I love that.…But it also means nothing is close to the front of the lense…and I'm at 16 mm.…So I'm going to do F8,…F8 is just a wonderfully sharp great selection, very happy.…
