What you can see, we are deaf to know
Where you have been, we will never go
Touch the sky
Let our crying blow
Heal our generation
Pray for us, sing the song of songs
A little experimental shot.
I wanted to get the light as the main subject of the picture, with the tree a secondary player in the frame, and I played around with some ideas how to do it. Most of the methods got me the tree as the main subject, and I knew I had to do something with the lighting, only the light was to strong to try anything conventional
Light metering from the brightest spot.
Widest aperture (F1.8)
exposure relatively high - 0.62 seconds (but actually shorter, as explained)
the lens was covered for a period of time to create the dark tones surrounding the light, so actually i tricked the light metering to get the dark tones very contrasted to the light.
PS - contrast and some levels. B&W and toning.
