A Room With A View

It was cloudy last night, and even a little drizzle when I took Max outside around 11 pm (23:00) but surprisingly I woke up to see this in the middle of the night. Max woke me up again with his bark of wanting to go outside. In order for me to capture this image, I had to use fill flash and recently learned from Scott’s blog that you can tune it down to capture a softer image. This is something new to me because I always use it at full blast and the image looks real harsh and flat. In the menu setting of your camera you go to Flash control, Built-in flash func. setting, then set Flash exp.comp to a negative power for less flash, and I had this image on -2. I didn’t want to turn on the light in the room, and without the fill flash I wouldn’t be able to capture the image of the drapery and window frame at all.

Manual, EF70-200mm f/4L USM lens, f/22, 1/15sec, ISO 200, focal length 200mm, white balance cloudy, spot metering, fill flash -2, handheld

  1. You have been moonstruck lately, Nye! And we have been enjoying the results. I like having the soundtrack–one day I hope to do these things too!

    1. Gerry, I could probably shoot an image of the moon in my sleep now. I went back to sleep after several shots, and woke up the next morning thinking that I was dreaming and sure enough I wasn’t. 🙂

    1. Thanks Cambree, I’ve seen it many times before but never thought to take a picture of it until now. I’m glad it came out well. 🙂

    1. Jeffrey, the moon is a fascinating subject to take and with the right setting you can create a stunning photo. I would love to capture one image is with the temple below.
