Part 6 Shooting a landscape at sunrise...
Let’s use everything we’ve learnt so far to produce an amazing landscape shot
For this pleasing shot of a Gloucestershire vale, taken in mid-autumn,
I got into position just after sunrise. Several mornings around that time had been misty – but with no break in the clouds for the sun to peek through, things looked a tad gloomy.
On my second revisit to the location, that had all changed, with the sun popping in and out of play while I was there. Shooting in Manual exposure mode, and noting the aperture value and shutter speed at halfway along the exposure level indicator, I shot a succession of frames either side of 0. Checking the images afterwards, I found the most pleasing images were taken around one stop under the camera’s ‘correct’ exposure, which was over-exposed.
