Our Student Photo Of The Month

This months top shot has been taken by Alan Jackson

Kevin and I have this month chosen this fantastic landscape image.

I got to a freezing cold Cobb before dawn after a 3 hour drive, and as the dawn came up I started taking shots from various positions on The Cobb. I know it sounds strange saying a stone structure is beautiful, but I really think it does look beautiful. I was just a bit disappointed that the sea was so calm, which I'm glad to say means many more visits to get what I am after.

Despite using the grads to take the shot, I still had to use Lightroom to bring out more detail in the sky, then I used Photoshop CC to dodge and burn some of the stonework, I selectively sharpened it with my now favourite method of High Pass sharpening, then back in Lightroom I finally added a vignette to lead the eye into the shot.

I used a Nikon D7100 with  a Sigma 10-20mm f4-5.6 lens @14mm
Exposure was 1/2 sec @f18 for maximum depth of field, and ISO 200.I also used  combined 150x100mm .6 and .9 Hitech grads in a Lee filter system holder, to hold back the ever brightening sky.

I was also using a Slik Pro 700DX tripod as being a heavy thing, it gave me the steady platform I needed.

Top Tip

When shooting a portrait, a plain background always works a lot better. When you look through the camera viewfinder, study the area surrounding your subject. Make sure no poles or trees grow from the head of your subject and that no cars or bikes seem to dangle from their ears.
