I have shot this Pagoda before at Meadowlark Gardens before. Not sure if I did it from this angle and because I have been in transit for the last 24 hours it’s a quick edit.
I shot this on my Nikon D5500 as I was learning to use it. Didn’t have any DX lenses for it so used my Sigma 24-105 FX lens. Did a great job but a little longer than I like with the crop. I picked up a Sigma 17-80 shortly after this which I have been shooting with. The camera with its flip out screen makes it a great video camera. Sure it doesn’t shoot 4K but it will does a very good looking HD.
Editing I mixed in some HDR and a lot of my normal workflow. Used a lot of gradients to bring the light down. Then set the contrast and overall exposure in Photoshop. Once I had those adjustments brought it into Aurora 2017 and just bumped some HDR settings to bring out the inside features. Then called it done.
