Going Down Under
No I didn’t go to Australia as much as I would like to. In this case I’m referring to the Lewis and Clark Caverns State Park. It’s a really cool place about 2hrs west of Bozeman. It’s a pretty amazing place that was discovered and fought over for years between private ownership and the state.
The caverns are a great place to work on low light situation without a tripod. Since the whole place is close proximity you can’t exactly stop and take a long exposure. But with the great sensor int the D5 and a little help with ACR capturing that detail in the rocks and then bringing it out is a snap. One the key factors is using the shadows to make an interesting composition because this is definitely a scenario where negative space is more important.
