From our trip last week to Bend, OR. We had great weather for most of our trip, but this little outing to Lava Cast Forest brought us some periodic showers. We kept putting our cameras away as the sprinkles turned to heavy drops. It’s hard to tell at this image size, but there are streaks of rain drops showing up in the clouds. It’s amazing how much shadow an highlight detail capture in a single RAW file. Seriously, who needs HDR with these modern sensors.
I just took this picture using a Canon 5D Mark II, the new 17mm TS-E, and OnOne Software’s DSLR Remote Pro on my iPhone. I shot tethered to my Mac Pro and processed through shot Lightroom 2. Blogged it using PixelPost
The whole process took less than 5 minutes. Nice.
It’s been a little busy lately and I haven’t had much time for personal work. Lauren and I are going to Bend in a couple weeks for some R’n’R, so I’m hoping to get to shoot some high desert scenics while we’re there. I love central Oregon.
About this shot… it was an outtake from a shoot in Santa Cruz I did last summer. I was checking my camera settings and snapped this shot kind of randomly. After I downloaded the shoot back in Portland, something about this image stuck with me. Maybe because it was a big job and this was the first frame from it. Or maybe just that smiling puppet thing made me laugh. Hard to say.
