Just did a drive across the mountains in Colorado, and a lot of it was in a whiteout…hazard lights blinking crawling along the highway looking for the road. But as soon as the snow started to slow down, I realized we were missing a great photo op with all the fresh snow in the trees. We grabbed snowshoes and headed into the forest, a magical quiet place, and I knew once again my tilt-shift lens would add the effect I wanted. I photographed my wife heading down the trail for the first image.
I liked this image a lot, but I also wanted to add some interest via flash. I set my camera to high speed sync, positioned a single SB900 off to her right, and shot away. Using a fast shutter speed allowed me to darken the daylight exposure about 1 stop. Tech: Nikon D3, 45mm tilt shift lens, 1/500 at F2.8. High speed sync used with one SB900, triggered by a SU800.
