Wandering Jasper before the snow
So, I decided it's time that I spend some time in Jasper, especially before the snow flies or the crowds get too large. So, I took a day off work, yes that job that drags me out and makes me not what I want to be. Today's little lesson is even if it is not perfect lighting conditions, you can get a beautiful image, because we always spend time as landscape photographers, listening to individuals tell us that afternoon light is useless. We can only photograph first thing in the morning, or just before the sun sets. This is crap!
So as I'm wandering down to Maligne Lake I always find greater vision at Medicine lake. I never do understand why there must be something about the transient nature of the lake. At this moment it is full higher than I've ever seen it at this time of the year. I'm sure global warming has something to do to contribute to the amount of water that is in the lake, and I can only hope that man corrects his ills.
So the image you see in front of you is a compilation of seven separate images shot vertically, and combined in Photoshop. It makes for an exceedingly large image considering that I am using a Canon 5Dsr with its lovely 50 mega pixel sensor. Yes, gang I'm embracing the old camera I haven't rushed off and bought a mirrorless camera. And to top it all off it was shot with a 50mm F1.2, that's right Canon’s Uber fast 50!
I am at this present time changing how I use my equipment, there will be a blog in the future about this change, suffice to say I'm getting rid of my zooms. I find zoom lenses making me lazy and affecting my composition and vision. I am truly falling in love with my 50mm and my new addition, that is Zeiss!
Till next time, cheers
Just shut up and shoot!
