“Turn around, look behind you.” I’m always (well, attempting to) telling myself to look around and not to get locked into the scene or setting that I imagined would make the best photograph. That was certainly the case for this photo. I imagine a scene of a pier in the early morning fog but that scene simply did not “work”. As I retraced my steps, the scene directly opposite from the one I had in one was by far the best shot and is this week’s featured photograph.
Once again I was using the G12 – it is so convenient and easy to use. This time, anticipating slow shutter speeds, the G12 was mounted on a tripod. Exposure was 1/60 second at f5.6 as set by Av mode for ISO 80. Processed from RAW in ACR, the histogram is shifted towards the right because there are few dark areas. I did not attempt to salvage the dark and bright details because those details simply were not there in the actual scene. Likewise, the colors are muted and unsaturated.
A different sort of picture for me but one that I like.
