This was shot while the storm was doing its thing. In Fort Myers, it’s not uncommon to see strong sunlight while it is storming at the same time.
This was taken with my Sigma 17-80mm which is an amazing lens. I did a lot of research while looking for a good video lens to use with the D5500. After a doing all the research I ended up with the Sigma Art lens which has image stabilization. It’s not constant aperture going from 2.8 on the wide to 4.0 on the long but that wasn’t a deal breaker. Matching it up with the D5500 had been a great combo.
Editing wasn’t much going on. In these type of shots you don’t need to do a whole lot. Applied my camera default and then a couple of gradients. Then a slight curves adjustment in Photoshop. Slight dodging and burning and called it done.
