Here’s a pic from last weekends workshop and what has grown to one of my favorite local beaches, Garrapata, or Dead Cow. I have NO idea where the name Dead Cow came from. I had no grad filter handy with this shot, so I took two and blended in post. I do this a lot these days with images shot with a tripod. It’s easier than pulling out and setting up the grad filter, and at the end of the day, I end up with more tonal control.
Shot with: Nikon D700, 17-35mm f2.8, at f18, 1/4 sec, and at ISO 100
