In this image Michele and I were heading over to my Bother house, and the sky was just out of this world. We needed to find a cool spot to take a picture, but the clock was ticking big time!! Sky’s like this can be gone in a matter of minutes. Then I came up with this cool idea; “Hey Michele, can you drive the car left and right as long as nobody is coming and I’ll grab a killer frame??” Needless to say I was setting up the tripod seconds later 😉
Michele improvised and held the brake down as well, which added another light and more drama to the scene.
I used the Canon 5D Mark II, Canon 17-40 f/4 L @ 35mm, Tri-pod, and I really wanted the longest shutter speed possible with the equipment I had on hand. In this case, the camera, lens and no filters. No big deal though, I stopped it all the way down to f/20, and also set my ISO to 50 which is a nice feature!! That yielded me a shutter speed of 20 Seconds and a really cool exposure.
