Join Justin Reznick for an in-depth discussion in this video Photographing the painted eucalyptus trees, part of Landscape Photography: Tropical Scenes.
- The key is to isolate the trees in this situation here.…We've got groupings, now, to get a group of trees…that work together is such a wonderful combination…and that's what I'm trying to capture here.…I've got a long lens on, I've got a 70 to 300…and I'm zoomed in past 200 millimeters.…And what I'm trying to do is compress and group the trees…together so that they look even closer…than they do in person in that final image.…I'm also doing everything I can…to make sure there is no sky.…
As I look in this scene I see little white patches,…and those are little holes through the trees…which bring in that bright white sky,…and that is a distraction and will affect…the quality of that image, so I'm composing…low enough to make sure I don't have any sky.…I'm also kind of watching the sun as it goes through.…I've got partly cloudy conditions,…which means as soon as the clouds cover the sun,…it's the diffuse light that I need.…Any time I get any sunlight coming in…it gets very spotty and harsh…and that is not what I'm looking for.…
