Transition to Dawn
I have been doing early morning shoots which means getting up something on the lines of ass o’clock (recognized time) in the morning to get to where I need to go so I can get my shots. I have been all over the last few days shooting just shooting and then heading home and taking much needed naps so I can be fresh for World Cup and Olympic Qualifies along with Euro 2016 friendlies (football matches for the unknowing).
This shot was taken just as I set the camera on the tripod and got my remote shutter and level cube thing on it. I looked up and saw the sky and thought why not fire off a shot and see how it comes out. I had nothing better to do at that moment. It was around 6:30 in the morning and the sky was just starting to lighten up and there was very little ambient light were I was.
The moon is a bit hot in the image. I get it. Moon shooting is hard and I have only gotten a few shots off of the Moon. The moon really screws with the cameras metering and I tend to leave it in spot meter so it may help out if I switched it to another mode. Still, I liked the image.
Ran it through Photoshop then went into Intensify FX and just started stacking filters until I got something I liked it. Not a world class photo but a cool looking one. Plus its proof that I can drag my ass out of bed at 5 AM to get to some place to do sunrise photos!
