Dynamic range finished image
Thank you to everyone who contacted me about the dynamic range article. This is such a huge topic and would need much more time to cover this. Yes Steve you are right, you can take multi images at + and – the meters standard reading, and combine these to extend the dynamic range of your camera. Something I will cover at a later date. I just wanted to show how a simple movement has a great effect on the overall image. When you are just learning it’s these little things that will help you take control of your camera, and know what will happen before you take the shot.
I have had a few requests asking if that is how I would leave my number 2 photo? Or would I enhance it. For me capturing the image is reminiscent of the artists rough sketch, it’s the finished image that shows what the photographer visualised when he pressed the shutter. So for me I will always try to recreate the vision I had in my mind. This is the beauty of photography, there is no wrong and no right, it’s what pleases you. Some may like what you do others may dislike what you do, everyone is entitled to their own view. What a boring world it would be if we were all the same.
So here is is my vision of the image I took that beautiful morning, and every time I look at it I can smell the fresh air and hear the birds singing, especially the cuckoo I heard that day.
