This was shot at Brookside Gardens on one of the many streams that seem to be all over the place. I just took a wander off the path and setup my tripod for some shots. In this case I had the tripod close to the ground by just extending the legs out because I’m lazy and don’t feel like adjusting them 15 times just to get low. The only downside to this is I am using to flip screens on cameras and sadly the Nikon D810 doesn’t have that.
I went low key for this image and then a bit of dodging and burning. I then brought it into Macphun’s Intensify CK and ran a filter through it. Slapped on a layer mask and painted in what I wanted and happily got it to where I wanted it. I felt the 2.4:1 ratio made it look cooler so went with that. Then I called it done.
