"Rhapsody In Blue"
©David A. Ziser
Here is another image I post way early on my DPT blog without any of the back-story. It is still one of my favorites. The setting was so unusual. I asked the couple to carefully work their way to the middle of the stream which was actually easier than it looks. It was a "muggy" day and the moisture was just hanging in the air. I asked my assistant to position himself and my Quantum flash behind the couple about 12 feet. The flash was set to full power and fired by the transmitter attached to my camera. I adjusted the shutter speed to just pick up the surrounds of the setting underexposing it slightly. The flash fired, it also highlighted some of the mist hanging in the air adding a dramatic touch to the lighting and the image. I love the finished result. Camera specs; Fuji S-1 fitted with Tamron 24-135mm lens at 39mm, F5.6 @ 1/16 second, ISO 800. Enjoy! -David
