DLWS NY Day 3 – AM Shoot
We started our day where we left off the night before, with an amazing view of Manhattan and the Statue of Liberty. Traveling down in to Jersey, we arrived and got in place just prior to the first glow of the day. One the light started to come up, oh my!
McNally said bring long glass and that was the perfect call! I bogged down the path to the right to get the torch in front of the dark predawn clouds to make it pop. It’s rare I get to use a wildlife technique with landscapes but always happy when it works.
What seems to be a recurring theme the past week as I’ve been shooting in NYC, but that’s the Empire State Building. I just love it’s classic shape and it’s placement on the NY landscape so it just sucks in the lens. I intensified the color with under exposure, this one was taken at -2.
We finished up with this amazing single God beam coming through the clouds. There was a major shift to the left in order to incorporate it and then dialing an addition -.5 to bring it out. What a start to the day!
