For those who have read my Canon EOS 7D review (found here), I haven’t tried the Canon 7D on nature shots yet, so last Saturday I did.
Me and my friends Jason and Nino went to Fujairah, its around 2 hrs drive from Dubai. I came there to test 2 things, first, my new 7D and second the Fader ND filter. I’ll talk about Fader ND on my future blog post, I had some issues with it.
I got splashed three times and the camera got a little wet in the process. I was more worried about my sigma lens since it doesn’t have any weather protection unlike the 7D. Anyway after all that splashes, both of were fine.
How I took this shot:
f11.0 @ 10 seconds
Canon EOS 7D
Fader ND (ND2 to ND400 Variable ND Filter)
Manfrotto 468MGRC2 Ballhead
- Took the JPEG file and open it as RAW in ACR 5.5
- Adjusted contrast, a touch of vibrance and clarity
- Adjusted curves and Saturation in Photoshop CS4 and added my watermarks
Not so much of ‘pp’ compared to my HDR photos.
Thank you for dropping by…
Hello Mike, I have to say that I am very amazing with your photography, skill level and how unique the shots are. If you have a second to tell me what software do you use to enhance the look of your photos.
I have just purchased 7D and learning how to use it, but learning how to enhance the photos is just another challenge on it’s own.
Thank you very much.
I am using Adobe Bridge CS6 and Adobe Photoshop CS6.
7D is an excellent camera, you will definitely love it!
