Michael Felton’s capture is our Top Pic of the Week!
Michael titled this photo, ” Fire on the Prairie”. What a fantastic shot of the beautiful wildflowers in Eastern Iowa! Beautiful photo of what Mother Earth shares with us.
He captured this shot using his Sony a7R, purchased from KEH Camera, with a Sony 16mm f2.8 @F8. The base exposure was 1/160 with a set of 3 exposures blended into a HDR in Lightroom.
Here’s a quick tip post production tip from Michael-
This shot was taken on the way to my favorite local spot to catch a sunset. I admittedly forgot about this shot in post. I was in a hurry, and too focused on processing the ones taken from an overlook about 30 minutes later. Thankfully, my wife pointed this shot out later reviewing shots on-camera after over-scrolling to the beginning of the card. Some lessons learned are to review every shot, not just the ones you think are really good ones, and also take time to go back through your archives, you may find something you overlooked or have since found a new processing technique that really makes it pop.
