I started this Photoshoot at 10.30 in the morning on the 14th of October and finished at 12.30. I took 5 photographs: one of each stage and a second one at the woodland stage. It started off as an incredibly sunny day, however, as the day went on it started to get a bit cloudier. I think this is due to the fact it was a very wet and cold night and early in the morning you could see steam coming off of the plants creating condensation.
1. Heathland: aperture 22 1/60 second
a. I started the shoot off in the heathland this time. It was a beautiful and cold morning. The sky was completely clear and the sun was really bright. I shot at a different area of the heathland as I didn’t want to repeat the same photos again. It was a much larger field than the photo from yesterday, but I have never shot of this field before because the sun was always behind it. I decided to use a higher aperture to make sure everything in the photo is in focus. Obviously I can’t go back and check after the first shoot so it’s all about hoping that I got it right.
Clearing: aperture 22 1/125 second
a. Before the Photoshoot started I looked over all the previous shoots I’ve had so far and I found a photo of the chopped down area that I ended up not selecting as one of my favourites. However, looking back I really love it, so I decided to shoot in the same direction (photo right). Again the sky was completely blue and there weren’t any clouds.
3. Woodland: aperture 22 1 second
The woodland was quite a tricky area because of the sun and the shadows
and trying to get an exposure in the middle. For that reason I took two
photographs in the same place using different settings. The first picture
needed a 1 second expose according to the light meter, but this is really long,
so for the second photo I wanted a bit of a smaller aperture so that the speed
would be a bit quicker. Again, I stayed in the same area as yesterdays shoot
(photo right) because it was my favourite area.
5. Overgrown: aperture 16 1/125 second
