Sky, shadows and the sea

Quinawan Monochrome

I decided to add a new category on this blog that would focus more on how the shots were taken and other technicalities.

Tech Data: Olympus C750 UZ (Semi-SLR), Handheld, Aperture Priority, 1/500 shutterspeed, f/6.3 Aperture, ISO 100, White Balance set at Manual, Tokina Circular Polarizer, Cokin Gradual Grey Medium (ND4) Filter

I decided to add a new category on this blog that would focus more on how the shots were taken and other technicalities.

Tech Data: Olympus C750 UZ (Semi-SLR), Handheld, Aperture Priority, 1/500 shutterspeed, f/6.3 Aperture, ISO 100, White Balance set at Manual, Tokina Circular Polarizer, Cokin Gradual Grey Medium (ND4) Filter

This was shot in Quinawan Bataan, I thought the two bamboo pillars looked picturesque with the human silhouettes and grass blades from afar. The tricky parts in shooting this landscapes with the lightsource in front is evening out the foreground and the sky. If you focus on the sky the foreground/ land becomes darker and becomes shadow, but if you shoot the foreground the sky would overexpose and blow up the highlights leaving the sky dull. To even out the sky I focused and metered on the foreground to keep its detail, used a Cokin Graduated Neutral Density Filter on the sky to reveal its color.

Post-processing done in photoshop was to colorize it in Hue/Saturazion for the Sepia look, which I think was more appropriate for the picture. Below is the original raw picture out of the camera.
