(tranquil acoustic guitar music) - Hi, I'm Justin Reznick, and we are at Lake Wanaka, on the South Island of New Zealand. This is such a beautiful location. The town is right here, a short walk takes us to this iconic willow tree.
We can see a crowd of people here for sunrise. This is such an amazing thing to photograph, and it's so incredibly accessible. What we're gonna do is approach this beautiful willow tree at sunrise. We're then going to shoot it during the middle of the day, with sunlight. That's something you would typically avoid, but we're gonna use infrared. Infrared landscape photography is an amazing tool to do something different and to embrace conditions we may, normally, not be shooting. We're also going to try and shoot with some clouds, with some clear sky, and all the way into sunset.
So we're really gonna take one iconic subject, and approach it many different ways. Let's get started.
