Behind The Lens

Location
A few kilometres behind San Quirico d’Orcia, in the direction of Pienza, there is an exit to the left; metalled way leads to some farms, located in the heart of the Val di Orcia valley.
Time
The photo entitled “Morning dreams” was taken at dawn of 1st April 2014
Lighting
A few minutes after the sunrise, the scene being photographed, looked quite presentable. The sunlight lit taller fragments of the fields, creating interesting parts. The Tuscany farm that I placed in the “strong point”, lets those who look at the picture estimate the scale of the shot.
Equipment
Canon EOS 5D Mark II Canon EF100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS USM tripod Manfrotto
Inspiration
. This year I decided to visit this region in spring, to see the fresh green fields and, of course, to take photos of them. The end of March and the beginning of April are the time when the prices are reasonable and there aren’t too many tourists yet. Most commonly, in the case of my lens (canon ef 100-400L), I use f16 and f18 lens stops in order for the sharpness of the depths to be the greatest. Many of my colleagues use a smaller "GO" and often photograph things while holding the body of a camera in their hands, yet I believe that the system that I had developed, works really well. Still, just in case, I do three exposures. If the photographed scene does not combine the sky, +1EV and -1EV are sufficient
Editing
In this case I took and I developed two RAWs. The first one showed in an appropriate way, a lower part of the photograph. The other one (a bit darker) was used to show the back plans, which – because of little fog – were much brighter. In both cases I set the “clarity” for -20, which resulted in achieving a softer picture. Using masks, I appropriately connected them in a graphic software, achieving a range of tones, satisfying for me. In a way, it resembles using a grey, half filter. The remaining part of the preparations was more traditional. Using, the “curves” I obtained a satisfying contrast in lights and shadows. Using the colour balance, I gently warmed the colours. Additionally, I emphasized the lights with a brightening brush with a very little cover. At this stage, one can also use a ready softening filter or selectively, soften the picture with a “Gauss blur”. This process is worth doing, excluding such elements as the building or the trees. At the final stage I sharpened selectively such elements as the building, the bushes and the trees, leaving the area of the fields unsharpened.
In my camera bag
Canon EOS 5D Mark II Canon EF100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS USM Canon EF17-40mm f4 L tripod Manfrotto
Feedback
It is worth to look for wavy areas (agricultural preferably). The direction of sunrays is particularly important. Watch the way the colours of fields change, depending on the angle that you set your lens. In such places, there often appear agricultural machines which can interestingly add variety to the composition. A wavy area hides many surprises in itself. It often happens that you walk only a hundred metres and discover a completely new display frame.
