Digital Photography has come a long way, people can now take better photo becasue of the more sophisticated equipments….higher resolutions.
Sydney is FULL of the early riser (photographer who gets up at 4:30am searching for the ultimate sunrise shot), what a better way to do it than being near the water to watch the sun comes up. I am one of them. This is a weekly rountine for a lot of people i know. This is my Sydney, this is how it is NOW.
10-22mm ultra-wide…..dramatic enough?
Just another morning shoot, we were blessed with these beautiful clouds, plus low still tide to create these beautiful reflection at Long Reef, Sydney.
<b>Have you ever wanted to walk on water?</b>
Cold morning? with the right gear you can stay warm and even walk on water.
I didn’t have my speedlite with me so onboard camera flash will have to do, compensated to +2EV flash power.
<b>Theory Behind The Shot:</b>
Trying to keep the bg as underexpose as you can by metering it.
Ideally, what one should do is that meter the bg and see how much it is, then adjust the flash to match it, so then you get evenly expose photo. but no flash would match the sun…so yeah. This is why they use reflector to reflect light back to the subject – if you dont want to use a flash. – again i have no reflector.
If you meter the subject….the camera would think, "shit, it’s dark, let brighten it up" – then you get blown out sky. So you meter the background and use flash to light the subject
