An inside look at what goes into getting the shot
About the shot:
This shot was a no-brainer...sort of. Fall multi-coloured foliage, moody fog...it's right out of a postcard. It's a shot anyone could take and would take if the scene presented itself. To make it my own, in post-processing I took out the colour and made it black and white. This turned the fall colours white and changed the perception of the shot from "postcard-perfect" to something more un-expected and different.
It was shot mid-day on a cloudy, foggy day. Probably my favourite type of light to shoot with while in the woods. There's nice even diffused light everywhere, with no harsh contrasts or shadows.
