Dawn & Heron
I’ve left Zombieland and am back in the Twilight Zone. I posted a few more zombie photographs on my Flickr. In regards to the photograph above, I’ve found myself getting into a habit of going for the gusto when doing sunsets, sunrises or surrounding twilight hours. What I mean is that I would either use really long exposures to snag every detail or shoot in brackets from 3 to 9 to fuse together in post later. While I’m a fan of the sprawling, highly-detailed end result of these photos, I realized out I was missing out on the flatter, silhouette style. Luckily for me, the great blue heron in the lower left decided to join me on this one and help out as a great silhouette subject. The only problem was to get him to sit still for the exposure. I cut it down to a 4/sec @ f11. It took me about 8 tries to get this one as he would move just enough or snag a fish with shutter still open.
