Early Evening In The Garden Of Good And Evil was shot at approx 9pm at Elkington Park in Balmain, Sydney, Australia, in the company of millions of mosquitos and batches of bats, on 10 March 2009. Lighting was provided by park lights out of frame to the right.
Since being Featured Art by Redbubble and then featured on the Redbubble Home Page in 2009, this work has become one of my most popular images on RB. It is also one of the works I am most proud of, especially as I had no set shooting agenda before I arrived at the location of this magnificent tree, a favourite spot.
Tripod-mounted Canon EOS 5D Mark II, with remote shutter cable
Canon TS+E 24mm f3.5L Tilt+Shift Lens with Schneider B+W 72mm UV Haze Filter #10
Speed: 20 seconds
Three separate shots, each with shifting the lens, not the camera, at +11mm shift, 0mm shift, and -11mm shift, respectively, then stitched together.
