Mt Battie, MMW Day 2 – AM Shoot
The gang rolled out at about, oh…Dark thirty this morning, guess they hadn’t heard about my reputation. We headed up to a locale that was new to me, but my very capable MMW assistant Brendan knew it very well. We headed up to Mt Battie which overlooks the small hamlet of Camden, ME. I wanted up us there well before sunrise because that’s when the best shooting occurs.
The capture was pretty straight forward, -2 exp comp, cloudy WB and simple arrangements of elements and click. I like that kind of photography so early in the morning.
On top of this mountain is this “tower” which is a memorial to WWI vets from Camden. It’s a kinda cool structure especially at sunrise. The one problem is that the sunrise didn’t come up and kiss the tower like I wanted. The light on the tower was all done in NX2, lightness, contrast and warmth all done with one quick and easy Color Control Point. I love NX2!
