El Capitan at Golden Hour by mbemis

El Capitan at Golden Hour

We took a field trip with professional landscape photographer, Laurence Parent, to capture El Capitan just before sunset. The peak looked great, but some clouds would have made the sky more dramatic. Oh well. I enjoyed getting advice from a successful photographer.

@cejaanderson He showed us how to use the histogram to get the best exposure, which was new to me. He also had some filter gadgets that he showed off, but, of course, I didn't have any of those, nor would I use them.

@gilbertwood @cejaanderson @lynnz @kimdavis Thanks for commenting on the photo of El Capitan. This is such a prominent part of our landscape that it is often over-photographed. I was grateful to have a new viewpoint of it and to be able to catch it in the evening light.

What a treat to spend that time with an expert! I'm looking forward to seeing you in March, and hope some of what you've learned might rub off on me. Histogram, for instance, is something I have no clue about.

Great shot. I have never seen it this close or from this angle. It's much more majestic up close. Lucky you to get to go out with a pro to give you pointers.
