In advance of my upcoming article on the directionality and quality of light, composition, and mood, I decided to post a landscape photograph to invite our readers to share their thoughts on how this photo was visualized and constructed. I made this particular photograph at one of my favorite subjects – the coastal bluffs at Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve in San Diego, CA.
As you study this image, are there any salient features of the light, contrast, textures, and angle of view? What tools could have been manipulated to create this exposure and print? Any thoughts on the exposure strategy and post-processing (if any)? Hint: one shot, one exposure – as I do with all of my photographs – in the classic tradition.
Please, stay tuned for the answer next week.
