Light on Water

Light on Water_MG_1947

Canon 5D camera and Canon 70-200mm f2.8 L series IS USM lens with Canon 2X Extender @ 140mm. Exposure Details: 1/400 second @ f11 ISO 400

Following on from yesterday’s post here’s another image from the Murray River at Mildura where I’II be working as stills photographer on the Australian motion picture film Summer Coda during November and December 2007.

This particular image explores the notion of Day as Night where the image is exposed and/or processed in such a way to produce a result that looks like it was made at night, when it fact it was shot under bright sunlight. The idea is to produce a more abstract and/or emotive interpretation that renders the scene as the seen. It’s akin to what the master black-and-white photographer Ansel Adams described as seeing in the minds eye. It’s not so much about what you saw with your eyes (reality), but how you reproduce that subject or scene in the final image.

The above image was processed in Adobe Lightroom 2 and Adobe Photoshop CS4.
