Moon Light

What do you do when you want to make pictures and it is very windy in the middle of the day and you have nothing of interest to photograph?  You make moonshine … well sort of.  These kinds of environmental conditions bore me, so I decided to try something else.

I cranked the exposure back -5 and used the program mode to make a few pictures in order to attempt to create images that looked like they were made in the moon light.  Doing this kept the ISO low with very small apertures (deep DoF) and very high shutter rates (no problems with blowing plants) …. On the order of f/11 and shutter rates as fast as 1/12,500 sec. using my micro 4/3 E-M1 Mk II camera.  I then used LR to adjust the exposures and dial back the saturation.

The initial results are shown above.  I’ll have to remember this technique when I’m out walking and try to work on improving it.
