Was Derek all set up to stay com­posed?

Derek was pretty con­fi­dent with his set­tings, which meant he could con­cen­trate 100% on com­po­si­tion

Derek al­ways shoots in RAW – which is es­sen­tial for land­scapes when you want to tease out shadow and high­light de­tail – and sets his D800 to its na­tive ISO of 200. He also shoots in aper­ture-pri­or­ity mode, us­ing ex­po­sure com­pen­sa­tion as needed, and he knows to set a small aper­ture to get ev­ery­thing sharp from front to back. That just leaves the fo­cus point, which he se­lects man­u­ally de­pend­ing on what he wants to fo­cus on. So with his cam­era all set up on his rock-solid Man­frotto tri­pod, he was ready to tackle the wide-open ex­panse of Win Green in Dorset.
