The Way the Wind Blows
One of the first shots taken with my new Canon 6D.
I received Canon's newly released 6D for Christmas. Featuring a 20.2 Megapixel full-frame CMOS sensor with DIGIC 5+ image processor, this compact, lightweight camera delivers enhanced noise reduction and exceptional processing speed. Bells and whistles include full HD video, built-in GPS and Wi-Fi transmitters.
There's a bit more of a learning curve than I expected so I'm taking things slowly to try out the auto features before I impose my own preferences. That said, this shot was taken:
-in RAW format
-in Aperture priority
-with evaluative metering, auto ISO and auto white balance.
My go-to place for inspiration is always Collingwood's waterfront. The high winds we experienced at the end of last week have covered all the gardens, rocks and structures in thick sheets of ice. These are some shrubs in my mother's memorial garden. In post processing I converted the image to black and white and added a bit of blue to the shadows. I'm very pleased with the tonal contrast captured in fairly low light conditions.
