April 27

So I've been trying to figure out how Jim Brandenburg created the cover photo for his book Chased by the Light. This is my attempt to recreate the effect. This was taken in around 9 this morning in the woods near our house. It's a dark woods for photography at any time of day but especially this early. I've been practicing with my smallest aperture, and I used that for a long exposure then zoomed out right at the end, which is something we learned in my class last week. I think this is how he did it because his photo looks like dark woods and low light too. My attempt looks really amateurish in comparison, but it's a start.
