labrador & a bird of steel
went to labrador park with yudi to shoot the sunset just now. the sky was really cloudy and that muted the colours somewhat. i planned to squeeze every ounce out of the scene by shooting to create hdr images in post. the above is a 7-exposure hdr image, with a little bit of colour-enhancement in photoshop.
i actually prefer this one to the landscape above. this was shot earlier in the evening. just so happened that i glanced up and saw a plane looking as though it was headed straight for the sun. i liked the sparse minimalism of this photo and enhanced that by stripping the colours away and giving the photo a look of stark contrast.
i think that shooting landscapes requires a great deal of patience and commitment. the weather isn’t always going to be fantastic. the light and the colours are not always going to turn out the way you want. research on the area helps a little but mother nature loves turning the tables on people so no guarantee there too.
