Gavin-3317

      Photo Details:
      Exposure time 1/500 sec, Aperture f/8 ISO 400, Focal Length 35mm, Canon EF 16-35mm F/2.8L

      Why This Photo:
      I love the trees, I love the path, and I love Gavin looking over his shoulder because he knows he is heading somewhere he shouldn’t.

      Challenges/Lessons Learned:
      Because of the branches of the oak tree against the sky, I thought it would look more dramatic if I processed this photo into more muted tones. I tried black and white, but I landed on this one with just a hint of color instead. I also have a very similar one of Carter running through a forest. If I were to recompose after seeing this full screen, I should have done a shallower depth of field to blur out the street behind. If I ever have time I will Photoshop the cars out. I also can’t decide if there are too many competing elements here with the branches against the sky, the pathway, and Gavin. Comment and let me know what you think!

      It reminded me of so many childhood stories where the hero/heroine is walking through the forest with the branches of the trees becoming more and more daunting as they travel deeper into the woods, and he is doing what you are never supposed to do…straying from the path. Just beautiful.

      Awesome. To turn it into a complete work of art, you might consider Photoshopping out the cars by blending the tones and making the background more generic and mysterious. I’m going to want one to go with the one I have of Carter!

      Yup – that is the one thing I said I needed to do when I had time.
