Bamboo Forest

I never new this place existed. My sister and her family took us to see the Bamboo Forest near downtown Gainesville…

All I had with me was my trusty Canon G11. Using it handheld, I decided to try a little slow shutter effects. First I tried using manual exposure without flash and really didn’t like the look. It was so dark that the contrast between the forest floor and the sky was to extreme.

Next I tried using Tv at 1/15. This was getting a slow enough shutter speed to get the amount of blur I was looking for. Things came together when I added a little fill flash set at -1 1/2 stops.
