Canon 5D Mark III | 50mm | F2.2 | 1/2000 | ISO160
Yet another two image set for the Daily Fifty entry!
It’s a twist of a beautifully back-lit crop field with a dreamlike sunset! A fruity twist (I used to love that drink).
There have been so many ‘photo opportunities’ across this field for me. Perhaps even ‘too many’? The sun set’s across miles of flat land behind the plot of land where I live. So we tend to get some beautiful colours and gorgeous light for about 30 mins each evening if the sky is right. This is usually when I am just sitting down at my desk, (View Daily Fifty #6) and suddenly this amazing harsh light shines across everything in view casting beautiful shadows.
I experimented with higher ‘F’ numbers for this shot, but I wasn’t satisfied with the look. This front row of crop needed the seperation, and the backlighting from the sun gave it that nice glow which complimented that nicely.
If I were to shoot this again, perhaps I would use a little fill light with flash (Maybe something to experiment with). As I was definitely having to pull the shadows and highlights in Lightroom to get the correct (Slightly flat) exposure across the frame.
Unfortunately not totally visible, but I also love the pylons that fall off into the background. I have shot countless number of images using this technique, I love it.
Again, shooting at ISO160 because I tend to shoot at the Canon camera’s Native ISO settings that are commonly used in the video world.
